9.2 CPU Spikes!

Post by kirillov » Mon Jul 06, 2015 4:21 pm

hello there!
9.2 is making my current project unusable. after about 15 minutes, there are crazy CPU spikes going on
and constant CPU overload. reminds me of some years ago, dont remember what version.
whats going on? I even changed all clips (not many in use!) from "complex pro" to "complex".
didnt help. update is needed!

thinkpad x220
i5 2,6 - 3,1 Ghz
250GB msata SSD, 500GB SSD, 12GB RAM
RME Fireface USB
Launch control XL

yeah, my CPU's have been acting erratic ever since i upgraded to 9.2 as well....i have an email in to support. we'll see. luckily i don't run a midi or effects heavy template....it was definitely strange seeing my CPU meter jumping around like it was.
i love you,please don't die.

well, it looks like with installing max7 the project runs much better.
I have to watch it a bit..

Yes, Right at the end of writing a score for a feature and bam Ableton upgrades me to 9.2 and everything is F*cked, timeline stutters, cpu spikes, I can only hope I can downgrade to 9.1.10. because I have a week to finish this. I thought I'd turned auto updates off too.

It seems that I'm having the same problem. After I upgraded, I cannot play any of my projects - the CPU goes mad! Before, all had been fine. Helpful tips are much appreciated.
