File import error on Pro Tools

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


This particular problem occurred after I imported a file in Pro Tools v.9.

It wasn’t any bigger than the ones I usually work with but since then every time I click play I get this error message:

A CPU overload error occurred. If this happens often, try increasing the “H/W Buffer Size” in the Playback Engine Dialog, or removing some plug-ins. (-6101)

I’m using Mac x snow leopard OS, and I’ve never encountered a problem like this one before.

If there’s any way you could help please leave a post.

Thank you in advance.

File import error on Pro Tools



Hello there! Did you try increasing the buffer size already? Well, if you do and that did not fix the problem, the disk is probably badly fragmented and has to be redone. Another option to fix this is to open your System Preferences and select Sound > Centrance MMP as the input device then close it. Go to AudioMidi setup and click Pro Tools Aggregate. Select Built In Mic as the Clock source. The clock settings should be the same as Centrance then close. Create a session in PT9. Select the Setup from the menu bar and then Playback Engine > Pro Tools Aggregate. Close and reopen. Go back again to the Setup on PT9 and choose IO. Close then go to the PT session Mix window and select the same outputs and inputs for existing tracks. Good luck!
