Chapter 6. Getting Ready to Record > Allocating Hard Drives

Allocating Hard Drives

To enhance system performance, Pro Tools lets you record audio tracks simultaneously to different hard drives. You can automatically distribute audio to drives using the Round Robin feature in the Disk Allocation dialog box.

To allocate audio hard drives:

1.
Choose Setups > Disk Allocation.

2.
In the Disk Allocation dialog box (Figure 6.19), assign a hard drive for each track by clicking in the Record Location column.

Figure 6.19. The Disk Allocation dialog box.


A new Session folder is created on each hard drive.

3.
To automatically distribute new audio tracks among system hard drives, select the Use Round Robin Allocation for New Tracks checkbox (Figure 6.20).

Figure 6.20. Select the Round Robin allocation checkbox to automatically distribute audio to multiple hard drives.


4.
To save new audio files to an existing folder (without creating another new Session folder), select the Custom Allocation Options checkbox, click the Change button, and choose the folder.

To create subfolders in this folder, select the Create Subfolders for Audio, Video, and Fade Files checkbox.

5.
Click OK.
