Got an error while using Garage Band software in Mac

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


I was recording a piece in my Mac using GarageBand when randomly I got this error message. 

Core Audio:

Disk is too slow (Write)



It was working before and I didn’t think my hard disk was slow.  I didn’t know what to do next. 

Any advice on how to fix this problem?  It appears intermittently.

Got an error while using Garage Band software in Mac


After making several research on that kind of problem , I've find many different suggestions and answers which I resume in that following article :

generally, you can fix this by restarting your system, but there are also some tips I found to help avoid this message in the future:

1. Quit as many other programs as you possibly can. Freeing up system resources can often help with disk swapping problems, too little RAM, and so on.

2. Make sure you're plugged in and that you don't have any strange Energy Saver settings (go into System Preferences to check it out). The one to avoid? "Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible."

3. Don't work with source material that's directly on an audio CD or DVD: copy it onto your computer drive before you go further.

4. Make sure you don't have FileVault running. Don't know what that is? It's a built-in disk security system that keeps your data encrypted but slows down reads and writes because everything has to be encrypted/decrypted on the fly.

Here's how to check if you have that running: Go to System Preferences and look for the "Security" icon on the Personal row:

Choose it, then click on the "FileVault" tab:

On mine you can see "Turn On FileVault". If yours says "Turn Off…" well, then you should seriously consider turning it off as it will speed up disk writes on your computer.

If those don't do it, you might well have a problem with your disk or computer. For most people, however, these should take care of the problem so you can get back to mixing and producing your material in GarageBand.

I wish that those answers could help you to solve your problem, my best regards

You just simply try to check your system setting  under the sound and then after the go to the Garage Bands setting under Audio MIDI tab then neither the speaker system or the USB from the selected input or out to your computer you just simply check on that and you just  Repaired and then verified Disk permissions then after you repair you just simply monitored the steps in the Ch. 10 in the garage band lost then you just turn off then turn on again after that you just simply reboot the system then you just simply cleaned the cache out from the system then you just set the buffer  size to max to your system just simply try that to your PC.
