View Full Version : mac trouble with pro tools
12-11-2002, 01:58 PM
I have a mac g4 with a maxtor 7200 rpm internal 40 gig hd and 256mb of ram. I use pro tools 001 and I am having trouble recording 8 tracks at once. Even in low latency mode. I am also having a hard time using multiple plugins. I am purchasing the 002 and would like to record 16 tracks at once for live gigs.I was wondering if I would be better off with a glyph firewire Hd or is something else wrong? Also can you use the glyph with different systems such as digi 002 and logic? Any help would be appreciated.

You need a dedicated audio hard drive. That can be additional internal drives (I have 4 for audio), or external firewire drives. Another thing that's holding you back is ram. Ram is cheap right now, get yourself at least a gig!

Hey there, I`m thinking about buying a new mac( Dual 867 g4), but I`ve heard that there is a "hardware" problem that will not allow you to use the digi001 protools LE package. Is that true? Do you know of this happening with a new mac?
I would appreciate any info, rumors, etc.

Yes, there is a problem with the Digi001 and ProTools. Your best bet for finding out the best information, as I'm a big MOTU user, would be to give Sweetwater a call and ask for the moderator of this forum - Michael Eads, or even email him. I'm sure he can help get to the bottom of your questions.

Patience! MacWoel SF is just around the corner. Maybe they'll anounce some good news about the MDDs.
