Which is less RAM/CPU intensive...to consolidate or not consolidate?
I am making a master Ableton set (in session view) with all of my songs and each section of each song (Intro, Verse, Chorus, etc.). Before I go too far, I want to know if it is better to consolidate each section of the song to a new scene (thus creating a unique file for each track and section) OR if it is better to take the full file and simply change the starting point of each file for each scene.
Will I get better performance out of not consolidating because Live will only be loading one file and playing it at different points rather than it having to recall a larger number of files that were created through consolidation?
