Got an error while recording using Pro Tools

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I bumped into this error message while recording a composition using Pro Tools 9 on my Mac. 

The operating system held off interrupts for too long. If this occurs frequently, try increasing the “H/W Buffer Size” in the Playback Engine panel. (-6086)


First time I came across with the above error that I had to search the internet for answers.  Unfortunately, I did not get any solution.  So, I chanced upon this forum and would like to ask help from you expertise. 

Can you give advice on how to resolve the problem?

                 Hello Samri! The error you get can be fix with changing your settings. Try to reverse your settings. Pro tools settings where use both processors, the maximum CPU rate is set to 99%. Try to modify this settings in your Pro Tools, set your pro tools to use only 1 processor, and set your CPU rate lower than 99%. That’s the solution that I did with my mac and it solved, I know it will solve yours to.  Set the settings to maximum level is not always right. Sometimes it may cause some problems so you need to try some other settings to work on. Hope it helps.
