Mouse movements cause GUI Freeze momentarily

Post by jestermgee » Sun Feb 03, 2013 11:08 pm


Ableton Live 8.4b 9
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Intel i7 3.6Ghz
6GB Ram
Kensington Works Wired Trackball Mouse

This isn't a big issue but I have never noticed an issue in the 32bit version of live. When I am playing a project and I move the mouse the GUI will sometimes freeze while mouse is moving. VU meters and play position will stop responding for short periods but audio is fine. This becomes a little difficult when making adjustments while playing witht he mouse but it's not too bad.

This is irrespective of the project and CPU usage.

Is this the same with Live 8.3?. I am wondering if this is a new issue?
Please inspect your memory and CPU use in task manager to see if live has enough resources.
Additionally make sure all anti virus, debugger, mal ware clients etc, are all disabled.

Hey, i have the same issues as you`re describing.

Live 9
WIN 7 Prof
i7 4770k
Gigabyte z97ud5h
8gb Kingston

Did you solved this annoying behaviour?
Coming from a flawlessly running win Xp system, this drives me nuts!
