8.2.1 CPU usage hitting 100% when it was only 20% in 8.1.5

Post by Jason Cortez » Fri Oct 22, 2010 9:59 am

I'm having some issues with 8.2.1 and its bugging me... Tracks that I've started in 8.1.5, the CPU was sitting happily at 20/30%, in 8.2.1 the same tracks are crackling and clipping with CPU useage hitting 100% and over. Anyone else having similar issues or have any ideas how to fix?

I have a core i7, 6 gig, 2TB raid system, running windows 7 pro, with NI Komplete, Rob Papen synths, Arturia collection and Z3ta synths and before installing 8.2.1 could run shit loads of synths without bouncing down or freezing, now with 8.2.1 is clipping and CPU usage it through the roof :evil:

Any idea's peeps?

I have a similar issue.

I tried to change to compatibility mode to Windows XP SP3 and the CPU usage was similar to the one in previous versions.

I've just sent a message to ableton about this same issue. I thought updates were supposed to make the program perform better, not worse. I don't know who ableton has programming for them, but whoever it is dosen't know how to program properly.
