Chapter 18. Optimizing Performance

In Pro Tools LE, every processing task—from the number of tracks you can record and play back at one time to the performance of RTAS plug-ins—depends on CPU power. Thus, using the fastest computer possible is the best way to optimize your system’s performance.

But computer speed is not the only factor. The amount of RAM in your computer makes a big difference, too, as does the way you allocate your system’s CPU power. Allocating CPU resources judiciously will allow your system to handle audio processing tasks without interruption.

This chapter offers some useful tips for enhancing your computer’s performance. I’ll show you how to manage CPU power by assigning resources where they’re needed. And I’ll also provide suggestions for running plug-ins efficiently, and for maximizing limited hard drive space.

If your system’s performance starts to lag, you may want to try some (or all) of these tricks. In other words, keep this chapter bookmarked.
