Hi guys,

It's my first post here!
Just for the record:

Buffer Size 528 samples = 12ms
-----------------------------------------------------------------
1) Ableton Live CPU Meter 25%
2) Desktop : Custom Made with Asus P5KC Motherboard
3) Operating System : Win XP Pro SP3
4) Ableton Live version: 8.1
5) CPU Make, Model, and Speed: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2400MHz

7) Soundcard: Presonus Firebox - driver version: 2.64
8) Hard Disk Drive Speed: 7200rpm (Seagate ST3320620AS)

264 samples = 6ms -> Ableton Live CPU Meter 27%
176 samples = 4ms -> Ableton Live CPU Meter 28%


More tracks with Buffer Size 528 samples = 12ms
-----------------------------------------------------------------
16 tracks -> Ableton Live CPU Meter 41%

I know this is old but it is useful for a lot of people still. Could anyone care to upload the files again? It seems like the OP's links are dead...

Thanks!
