How many voices does Ableton offer?

Today I was doing some in depth resampling and found that I could not playback all of the tracks I wanted to at once. I was attempting to resample synth sounds I had put into a drum rack back into audio tracks when this happened.

I am wondering whether this problem occurred because I ran out of usable voices in Live, or simply because I did not have enough RAM to work from.

Mostly this sparked my curiosity. How many voices does Ableton have?

Mac Book Pro, 2.5 GHz i5 Processor, 4 GB RAM

    I don't think Ableton is limited in that regards, it will only be limited on what your PC can do and when you push it past that it starts to drop audio and overload (CPU indicator will inform you of that).

    Individual instruments may have a voice limit but as for tracks themselves it should be (in theory) unlimited.
