What's the most tracks you've had in an Ableton session?

And what are your system's specs?


I have an award show I could end mixing in Ableton (for broadcast TV) and currently they're talking about 64 tracks of audio. Anyone handle this much or more in their set-up? Possible?

depends on the lenght of the tracks i guess, and the rest you wanna use, plugins etc.

Nevertheless i'd say definitly possible, i alredy had a set with about 100 tracks, on my old 1,2ghz duocore.

with 4gb ram on windows 7.-

worked perfectly fine.

83 IIRC without counting sends... Eventually I remember adding just a last VST and it crashed and I couldn't even open the set anymore... had to move my vst folder... it was with a Q6600.
