7Skies runs 100+ tracks in Logic without issue. Oh did I mention that was back in 2012? LOL (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMthngHT5HE)
He also runs 170+ tracks without strain in another project... with tons of extra third party plugins that are demanding.

Lets compare! > https://www.gearslutz.com/board/logic-p ... g-osx.html

The cpu issue is driving me nuts and I'm on the edge to leaving Live regardless of the good workflow. 8% idle, 15% with 5 channels w/ simpler + 8band eq, 40% with one reaktor, some ozone plugins and you max out 100%. Sure they are demanding, but logic can play past 600% load. There is something which has to be addressed here by Ableton. I love the DAW, but this is a deal breaker.
