Disk Limit Alert In Soundtrack Pro

Have you become acquainted with this alert message while in Soundtrack Pro:

Disk Limit: Soundtrack Pro is dropping audio because you computer's hard disk cannot deliver all of the audio in time. Try removing long files or quitting applications.

This error message occurs when you have exceeded your system disk's ability to deliver in real time on account of the amount of data to be streamed from your drive. Keep these suggestions in mind if you encounter such an alert.

1 Remember, if you have multiple programs running simultaneously you are taking away from the pool of bandwith that can be available to Soundtrack Pro, so you may want to shut down other programs.

2 Six programs at 10 minutes each is easier on your hard drive than one large 60 minute clip, so remember to break it up if possible.

3 If you are using a laptop, it could help to have a faster external drive as opposed to using the internal drive.

Real time performance is not crucial to the act of exporting, so if you are receiving this message you can still kick out mixes, but audio will still be dropped. Choose Soundtrack Pro > Preferences > and choose the General Tab to access the Show Alerts menu and uncheck the overload message alert. Remember, if you're cranking past your disk's capabilities, turning off this alert does not change the fact that you will have dropped audio.
