Re: Things you should know about Ableton cpu spikes, Latency and Nvidia drivers

Hey TigerMendoza, thats what I like to hear! Glad the post helped you out a bit. Nothing kills creativity more than your computer choking when you need it most. I've been happily problem free since I posted this, now I just need to update to something with more power. Got my eye on an I7. Maybe an xmas present to myself lol.

Look forward to your post! Same for anybody else reading this, if you have some findings to contribute, post it up

Re: Things you should know about Ableton cpu spikes, Latency and Nvidia drivers

Hey this is my first post just joined so I could tell everyone about another trick that wasn't mentioned here. This made the biggest difference for me so hopefully it helps someone. Ableton had been way unstable for me. cpu spikes and sets that didn't have much going on at all fluctuating up to 106% with snaps crackles and pops on an overclocked 6 core pc with 16gb of ddr3 and 2gb of gddr5. What I found out is that power saving options in my Bios settings were turning off the cores that "weren't being used" causing the instability in ableton. Long story short quick solution is to restart your computer go into your bios and make sure power saving options like c1e or cool&quit are disabled. Instantly solved my problem also drastically improved my latency benchmarks. Just something you might want to look into. Thought I would pass it on and hopefully it'll help.

excellent man, thats the kind of stuff we are looking for. I personally am not very confident when it comes to messing with the bios, but I would like to learn. The symptoms you described are exactly what I had

I'm having this cpu spikes too, but on a macbook pro. I've searched for tools like mentioned for Mac OS, but found none. Does someone know what to do on a Mac?
