    I'm using the Digi001 with ProTools 6.1.1. When "bouncing down," why does ProTools proceed to play the entire session as it's mixing everything down? Is there a way around this? Sometimes I have to work on something that's 50 or 60 minutes long, and the last thing anyone would want in this day and age of fast computers is to have to sit there for an hour as it bounces everything down. And God help you if you get an error 45 minutes into it.

    If there is a way around this, someone please let me know! Thanks!!!

    I don't know the answer too your problem, BUT if you go to the digidesign user conference (DUC) they'll be able to help you.

    I don't know the exact URL, do a Google. 8)
  3. Hey yo,

    Use the Selector tool to select (hilight) the audio that you want to bounce. Select bounce to disk and proceed as normal. I do this all the time

    Unfortunately bounce to disk in pro tools is always done in real time (i.e. if you select 2 min of program out of 60 it takes 2 min) you know digital performer can use the DAE....
  5. I am just guessing, but is it possible that PT bounces in real time for the sake of outboard effects?

    little help to ya

    why are you getting errosr at the end of your bounces?
    a) HD fragmentation > Norton or similar utilities will help ya;

    b) go to PREFERENCES and reduce the maximum rec size to the maximum bounce you will be doing. for example, a 5 minute song, no need to use and make PT record over a "virtual heel" of 90 minutes;

    c) check your DAE buffer size;

    d)disable any plugs that are not being used;
