    Under playback engine there is an option for DAE playback buffer. The defult is level 2, but I got a couple error messages with large amounts of tracks. I put it at level 4 with no issues. What is the diffrence? Should I raise it even more? What does it do?

    the bigger the buffer the more delay...
    It's not so bad though..

      The DAE Playback Buffer allocates the amount of system RAM the DAE will utilize. Level 4 is what I have been using, even with HD systems.
      The H/W Buffer will effect latency. Lower number=less latency. Use the lowest possible for recording. Higher number=more latency. Use a higher number when mixing or needing to run many plug-ins.
