Strange ProTools issues

Hey there,
i have actually two Problems with ProTools.

  1. We have several plugins, if I open them all and play some music for around a half hour, ProTools GUI starts to “freeze” It looks like something is laggy or the FPS is getting really down to 5-10. If its start one time its getting bader and bader with the time.

CPU looks good. Graphic card also and also there is no memory peak.
So everything seems to be fine but it isn’t…
I tried it in other DAW’s but nothing happened there.
If I only open one Plugin in runs 24hours without a problem.

I tried to set the repaint counter lower and changed some lines for more performance in the GUI in my plugins but that doesn’t seems to change anything.

For me it looks like there is a event or a handler which gets not handled in time but actually I have no Idea how to search. Any Ideas would be helpfull :slight_smile:

  1. ProTools developer is not starting as executable from Xcode. The icon come’s in the taskbar but then nothing is happening. I fi run ProTools Developer without Xcode everything works perfectly.
    I tried to reinstall, deleted the cache in the Application Support Folder and deleted all my plugins…
    The console from Xcode shows the follow:
