CPU Overload In Ableton Live

Post by itsMeszo » Mon Jun 03, 2019 6:26 pm

Hey guys, doing fine?
So, i recently started to search for solutions to this "new" problem that i'm having since Thursday (30/05).

My Specs: Macbook Pro Retina 13" Early 2015
128gb SSD
i5 2,7ghz Quad core
8gb Ram

So, the problem is:
I am using Ableton Live in this computer since 2015 with no problems (no lag, no Cpu overload) at all (multiple vst's and au's in the same project, a lot of audio tracks, with Safari opened, etc) but suddenly, since Thursday I am having an strange issue, when I open my projects that i was already working on with no CPU overload, they start with 17%/18% of CPU with no audio going on, and then when I play the audio it gets a lot of crackling and the cpu goes to 70%/60% (It didn't goes to 100%). I already tested on Ableton 9.7, 9.7.5, 10.0.5 and 10.1 and it keeps in the same problem.

I recently updated my Mac to Mojave 10.14.5 (I was using OSX Yosemite) but the problem started in Yosemite. I thought by updating the system it would solve the problem, but it keeps the same thing.
This started suddenly while I was preparing my PC to update and doing Backups with Time Machine and saving my projects in new folders with collect all and save (no problem with this, it's all ok with my files).
I have already tested everything I saw on the internet, deleted the Preferences, Undo, etc, reinstalled Live, nothing works.

I hope anyone can help me solving this annoying problem :)

Live was updated to 10.1 on tuesday (may 28)... so that's probably something to look at.

That's not the problem, since it started in 9.7 and keeps in any version i try.
It started suddenly, not a version problem.
