Re: Ableton Live lagging on a Mac Pro?

No suggestions at this point: just following your plight. I'm trying to get answers over at apple.com, but I thought I'd check here to see if anyone's had the same issue. Recently, my 2x2 core 6gb ram Mac Pro on 10.5.8 started lagging painfully when I run Ableton Live (8.0.4). It's ridiculously slow...

Re: the os x tips thread

Has anyone experienced problems with an upgrade from Live 7 to Live 8 -after deleting the Live 7 root folder? If so, what files have you kept in order to run the live 8 upgrade version without Ableton searching for the prior edition?
Assuaging my concerns would be most helpful, thanks.
