So here it goes with my first post... I have a 1.5 Ghz G4 Powerbook and two Metric Halo 2882's that crash when there are more than eleven tracks being recorded simultaneously. I am using Cubase SX as software. The machine will record for a while, and then there is a glitch and the many tracks become misaligned. From what I have read on this forum my machine should be able to handle sixteen tracks easily. Is there a way to get the machine to save to the hard disk earlier, and not save so much info in the RAM? The problem happens as the CPU meter spikes up considerably. The problem was kind of fixed when I made an adjustment in the OS X program called, “Terminal” but this was rather annoying to do. Thanks for any help any of you can offer.
