I had yet another project get bogged down. I bounced and printed a few tracks and groups and disabled all 3rd party plugins. when i say disabled, i do not mean ‘bypassed’. not good enough. still getting spikes, white screens (when attempting to adjust automation, and it was freezing up and crashing. so i went through and took out all of the 3rd party plugins (selected ‘no effect’). presto. that was the problem.
Now, the funny/puzzling thing is that they can be brought back in? the project seems to simply benefit from them vacating the premises…even if only for a time?
I thought that disabled was disabled, seated in the insert undetected. At least in this project it is not the case.
