Dropouts/CPU insanity with Live 9.6.1

Hi, not had probs with Live auto updates until 9.6.1 Jeez! Much spluttering if I so much as drag a sample into an audio channel. When playing audio slows or freezes etc, etc. HAVE NOT MADE ANY SYSTEM CHANGES OF ANY KIND!!! Anyone else suffering similar faults on a previously stable platform, before I contact Ableton directly?

Now I'll go back to my unintentional glitch tune...

Thanks

    I´m having the same problem. 9.5 was running smoothly and since i updated to the 9.6.1 version i get CPU usages of 900% + and non-stop dropouts ...

    did you solve the problem erik?

    It´s me again. I just disabled multicore/multi-core-support and it seems to run smoothly now. If you haven´t fixed the problem yet you could give that a try. Good luck!

    this prblem seems to happen with PC users like my self after live 9.6.1 update, I contacted ableton staff,  so I "downdated" ableton to 9.6 and it works smoothly again, I thaught also about disabling multicore, but i didn't do :(. if you use Asio4all driver it would also works smoothly but in that case you connot use your external soundcard, beacause if you do the dropouts will come again and stronger.

    it is definitly important for the staff that multicore-support has to do also somthing with the problem.

    it is so frustrating in the beginning specially when you are working on the creative part of production

    I think there would be another update soon with a better solution (I hope).

    there is also another problem with live 9.6.1 :

     if you are using asio4all and want to load a project with Max4Live live would crash.

    circumvented this problem by using the MME driver just to load the project and after that I would change the driver type to ASIO.

    by the  way if you use the external soundcard there is no problem with loading projects with Max4Live but you would still have dropouts.

    Yes, same problem here with a PC running Windows 7 Pro 64bit and v9.6.1.

    One of the users who replied to me (Hi flip!) suggested disabling "multi core support" in preferences. It works! I've contacted Ableton about this, I suggest you do too.

    Cheers E.

    Same problem here.
    Disabling multicore support helped for a short time, then at a certain point when i started the playback it rose to 100% in a second.

    Also the Push 2 Display Process is eating up much cpu.

    Hi Guys,

    Is this a PC only problem or is anyone having this problem on a Mac?

    same problem here with PC. Switching off multi-core is fixing it.
