How to get rid of dropouts in a large live set on good hardware?
I am having a lot of trouble with audio dropouts on a large live set. I've got about 150 tracks, all audio, none in ram, and not a lot of effects going on. Played back on a Macbook Pro 2008 with all files coming from an SSD. The disk overload light never goes on, and CPU is routinely at about 6-13%.
I'm using an 828 for audio over firewire with the buffer maxed.
When I'm running through my set, everything is fine for the first 45 minutes or so. But at some point whenever I trigger a new scene, I get these lags that occur at the transition. Sometimes it's not too bad, but at other times the same lag will occur even after looping the clip. It sounds horrible.
I found the thread here: https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=158435&hilit=+dropout which suggests to split the large live set into two. I'm wondering if anyone has figured out another way to solve this problem without splitting up the live set?
