How do you improve performance in large sessions?

So I recently started mixing in Ableton instead of Pro Tools. When mixing some of these big 80 track session Ableton just completely falls apart for me. I have an i7 macbook pro with 8gbs of Ram so I think my comp will be able to handle it. 

 

Are there any special settings people use for mixing or is this just the nature of the beast? I've been amazed with Live so far but I'm really starting to see some major weaknesses in the pro mixing department.

    "Set your mix at a lower Sample rate until happy then up it to required rate when you Export" does this really help ease off the cpu?

    Dude,

    • Freeze your tracks pre-master/ final mix.
    • Make sure you delete any unused effects/inst' racks.
    • Switch off your wireless and bluetooth.
    • Close any unused Apps.
    • Shut off Dashboard.
    • Set your mix at a lower Sample rate until happy then up it to required rate when you Export.

    Try these - hope it helps :)
