    the D-labeled LED indicates that the data cannot be read from the HD in time. The CPU, therefore, has likely nothing to do with the issue. If you are using a large number of short audio clips, I would try loading them into the RAM. If that does not help, plese get in touch with our technical support.

    You should try to upgrade to an SSD rather than putting tons of RAM. 8GB is the best for using Live in 32bits mode, allows it to use it's 4GB of dedicated RAM, and let the remaining 4GB for system use.
