    Logic has been giving me errors lately saying that either my processor or HDD is not up to the task. I tested this error on older recordings that had never crashed in such a way before and it is still present.

    I first noticed the issue after swapping out the drive, but my battery is also on it's last limb, and my computer appears to be using only one core (only one CPU gauge is being used in the monitor inside Logic)

    Anybody have any insight? Thanks in advance.

    What is the exact message and when does it happen?

    Are you running Logic 8.0.2?

    What is the I/O Buffer setting in Logic's Audio preferences panel?

    I knew I forgot to give all the info haha.

    It is Logic Express 8.0.2, the I/O buffer is set to 512 samples

    Of course now I can't get it to reproduce the error, and when I was trying the CPU monitor was showing that Logic was using both cores. I am not sure why it does this sometimes, but it was definitely only showing one being used before.
