    I am stopped cold and unable to continue a recording session, since upgrading to Yosemite.
    Upon playback, I get a "disk too slow and system overload" error that stops the playback.
    computer: Mac Pro early 2008 w/2 2.8 Quad Core Processors running 10.10 Yosemite, 14 GB RAM ,Nvidia Ge Force GT 120 graphics card.

    There are only (2) tracks with anything going on on this new project .
    The session is playing a MIDI instance of Addictive Drums on one track, and I am accompanying it on another track live with a Logic Steinway piano being played on a Korg keyboard connected with a MOTU Fastlane USB.
    I had no issues whatsoever with this same project/configuration with the previous
    OS (Mavericks).
    Completely shut down and frustrated.

    Sorry to hear you're out of commission. This is why you need to keep a test partition, and never take it for granted that everything will work, particularly with a major upgrade.

    If for some reason you can't keep a test partition, you need a backup that can be used to restore your system to a previous state when these things happen.

    Less likely to be Yosemite IMO. That error is often the fore runner of a drive failure. Probably a coincidence that it happened after an update. I have the same machine as you and it's running fine with Yosemite.

    It may be the Fastlane midi interface. It may not be Yosemite ready. I don't see a update for Yosemite.

    Ran a complete TechTool Pro 7 analysis of the system and drives, everything checks out ok,(in reference to Michaelo's hypothesis of a drive about to fail), will research the Fastlane possibility, thanks for the input ,fellas-

    I was having a hell of a time bouncing certain instrument stems for a drummer in LA to do tracks for me. OMG! Anyway... I tried everything and the thing that changed it all was just changing the folder I was bouncing it into. I put the location to "Documents" and it worked like a hot damn! Not sure if it will help anyone else but....
