Hi, I just downloaded GPO 4 yesterday and have been messing around with it in PTLE8 today and overall am loving it but have been experiencing an odd problem. I was getting CPU overload errors using multiple instances of GPO - one per instrument - but then discovered that I could route multiple MIDI channels into the one instance of the instrument, each one being interpreted with its own sound (flute on channel 1, bassoon on channel 2, etc.). This seems to work fine, except that if I go back in to GPO to edit the channels - say, to add another instrument or adjust levels - it seems to sort of half-freeze.
I can do some limited things - I can turn off a channel, but not switch it on; I can reset to factory defaults, but then can't put any instruments back in; I can view some of the other tabs, but not get back to the first view with the instruments and sliders. And since this problem cropped up, I've had PT crash on me a couple of times. Has anybody else had similar problems? My system is a little stretched with this, it must be said, but I can't tell whether it's because my disk isn't 7200rpm, my processor is inadequate, there's too much junk on my hard drive or what. Any suggestions?
I'm running a MacBook Pro 2.16Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 2 Gb of RAM. My hard disk is 120Gb, but has only about 30Gb free. I'm recording audio to a Formac Mini Firewire 400 drive which was newly reformatted this morning, so it still has about 100Gb free on it. I've tested this out both in the session I'm working on which contains a video track plus a number of Instrument tracks, and also in a brand new session, but they both do the same thing.
Any suggestions most gratefully received!
