Wishing very much that hadn't upgraded to 10.2.1. The System Overload problem is worse than ever. I only ever had it when I used MIDI. Now it only take 10 audio tracks. MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

I'm having varied results. One thing you can do is to to your preferences / audio and change the I/O buffer size to be larger when mixing - like 256, maybe 512. Then drop it back down for recording. It also is the case that if you have plugs on submixes and your recording tracks is in a submix that you will use almost 2x the cpu, so make sure to have your recording track outside that stuff, and also it's the case if you have pugs on your master bus that it eats CPU. I try and track with nothing on busses, etc and save that stuff for the mix if I can. Beyond those things you gotta fiddle with the stuff I posted up a while ago about how to finesse the process allocations over the cores, etc.

yeah, I saw your post. I am protesting the fact that I have to change my workflow now. My workflow has been the same for years. Any change to it hampers the creative process. It's like taking a shit everyday. One small adjustment to my life and I'm off.

lmao - I hear you...if you do backups you can always go back. I like what they said they did in this...we'll see if it actually is better. It's supposed to be better performance-wise, not worse...

Strange. Overall I note less demand on the CPU threads with the current projects I'm working on. May I suggest this free e-book? (No need to subscribe to anything. Just a free download.) http://www.logicprogem.com/LogicProGEM/Home.html Pages from 46 to 49 deal with multithread performance, hopefully it helps.

I recently upgraded computer to i5 and LPX and I wasn't having any overload issues until I started using some 3rd party eq & comp plugins, specifically the V3 bundle from Waves.com and the Scheps 73 eq/preamp.....and oh yeah the Kramer Master Tape....that one was an immediate overload issue. The one thing I've noticed on this digital journey is....faster, more memory, larger programs, more memory, etc.etc.etc.......unless your going to be running a super computer to manage all this technology, I suspect we will be dealing with this on a regular basis. I've been thinking lately that instead of upgrading to the i5 mac mini, I should have put the money into a Mac Pro desktop and increased the ram & HD.
