Question about Ableton Live 7
Try freezing tracks that dont requre any thing doing to them, for example drum tracks that dont require any more tweaking, freezing tracks saves CPU

It is quite possible that you have too many audio tracks playing at the same time. You could also be running at too high of an audio resolution for your computer to handle. You can usually tell how hard the computer is working by looking at the percentage bar in the top right. If its over 70% your hardware is working too hard. You should always consolidate your audio tracks after recording them. This saves CPU work. To consolidate an audio track you simply right click on it in the side-scrolling view and select consolidate. Other than that you can try lowering your bit depth or sampling rate and see if the problem improves. Ableton has some pretty cpu intensive reverbs and instruments as well. You may want to try to exercise some restraint when putting a bunch of software synth tracks together. You can also freeze midi or audio tracks that you are not currently editing by right clicking on them and selecting freeze. This dulls their sound somewhat, but allows you to get a feel for the mix without overtaxing your computer. And lastly, you can always upgrade your hardware :P
