Pro Tools Compatibility Chart

Big thanks to Avid for putting this useful compatibility chart together. If you have recently upgraded your Pro Tools to 11.1.2 and started receiving error -9173, this is not a bug with the update. That error has to do with running out of CPU power. I have been experiencing this myself and cleaning up your computer, checking the activity monitor, and checking the system usage in Pro Tools can narrow things down for you.

If you encounter this error message try the following:

  • Go to Window>System Usage and check the CPU usage meter. If the meter is around 80% or higher you may be pushing the CPU too hard causing the error message. If this is the case, then systematically inactivating Native plug-ins to find the most CPU intensive one then inactivating, replacing with a less CPU intensive plug-in, or printing the processed audio to a new track then inactivating the original track, may help.
  • With Pro Tools 11, try enabling Dynamic Plug-In Processing in the Playback Engine.
  • Ensure that your system has been optimized according to the Pro Tools optimization guide for your system.
