1-Ableton Live CPU Meter: 17% (bounced between 16%-17%)
2-Computer: Mid 2012 Macbook Pro 15 Inch
3-Operating System: OSX 10.9.5
4-Ableton Live version: 9.2.2
5-CPU: i7 Quad Core 2.3ghz
6-RAM: 16GB 1600mhz RAM
7-Soundcard: Core Audio
8-Hard Drive: Samsung EVO SSD 750GB
9-Number of playback tracks: 8

At over 100 tracks it's starts going downhill rapidly. Although i will say for a little while after the 100 track mark the dropouts only occur immediately after i start the playhead. For example... at the 110 track mark immediately when i start playback the CPU will spike horribly at over 104% (yes 104%) just for a second. Dropouts/glitches for about 2 seconds...but then the CPU load immediately drops down and hovers around 83% and no more dropouts.

Really impressed with the power. 192 tracks @ 91% and 208 tracks @ 98%
Clocking the cpu @ 4.5GHz did not really make a difference however. Just a few tracks more. Wondering what is going on here...
