SSD Users MAC - Major problems


I'm not getting great support from SSD on issues I am having with the sampler.

I have Platinum, CLA and TD drums.

I am on Pro Tools. A few weeks ago, per supports suggestion, I did a complete and fresh install of 10.8.4, PT 10.3.7. Every piece of software was freshly installed.

So I create a new session, import my V2 mix for a V3 mix and SSD drums input is grayed out. The midi track sees the instrument track, but the instrument track SSD is grayed out.
I deactivate the SSD sampler and insert a new one. Same problem.

I create a new instrument track, insert a new SSD sampler, same problem.

I create a new session, create an instrument track, insert SSD and import the midi track from another session.
Same problem.

I cannot assign my midi track to the SSD sampler. Period.

So I basically can't even use it any more.

Any thoughts? Or am I a wash with this sampler and drum library.


P.S - I found it really doesn't play well with multi cores. I have a Mac Pro 12 core. If PT set for more than 12 cores, errors happen alot.
Set for 12 cores, errors continue less frequent.
Set for 6 cores, it seems a bit better.

However, to get around the errors, I have to check "ignore errors during playback".

At lower latencies on both a MOTU 424 and Apollo 8, it is problematic. 128 is basically the lowest I can go. But I still get errors at 2048 on the Apollo with SSD.

System. Mac Pro 2.4, 12 core, PT HD 10, MOTU 424/Apollo 8 Quad/Quad satellite/Octo Core, OSX 10.8.4, 32 gigs of RAM.
