2)Macbook Pro 2.4 15 inch
3) OSX 10.4.11
4) Intel Core 2 Duo
5) 2 GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1 GB
6) Internal soundcard
7) 160G Internal Drive

I think I'm going to cry now.... :(
What is causing this dreadful performance? Processor stepping? Apple update to Core Audio? I feel like I'm back on a single core processor.....(fills his boots with his tears....)
It seems you're running a SantaRosa MacBook Pro (Check it out by clicking on the blue apple in the upper left corner if the bus speed reads 800Mhz it's a SantaRosa). Those are known to use CPU stepping like crazy. Many threads on this already. http://www.coolbook.se/CoolBook.html this is said to help. Do a forum search on CoolBook.

Performance Test iMac 2,66

Post by Azure Feast » Sun Feb 08, 2009 10:02 am

Live 7.0.14 8 tracks

1) CPU Meter 40-41% @ 512 Samples
2) iMac 2,66GHz
3) Leopard 7.5.6
4) Intel Core 2 Duo 2,66GHz
5) 4Gb 800MHz DDR2
6) M-Audio Fast Track Ultra USB2
7) WD iBook 500GB 7200rpm by FW800

I am quite happy with the results. It is marginally better than other I have seen before here for that machine (around 46%)

I also did the test in Rewire Slave mode (Playback Mode) with Logic Pro 8. With 8 tracks 83-84% CPU. No clicks... Definitely useable!
