I have 8gigs of memory and I can't play back my song. There are some FX and about ten tracks, but that shouldn't come anywhere close to bogging down my system, right? Anyone else have this issue?

    I am not getting the 'Out of Memory' pop up, but the 'Part of this project was not played' message. Apparently there are too many tracks, effects or notes to be played in real time. I have 8 software tracks hosting 8 instances of Addictive Drums. Its just one drum track split into each kit piece. One real instrument track with recorded bass and 2 electric guitar tracks. The electric guitar tracks have nothing in them, just armed ready to go. The project shuts down 1/3rd way through when playing back the drums and bass. If I delete the 2 EG tracks then all is fine. This never happened on my early 09 2Ghz macbook with GB 09.

    Electric guitar tracks are very cpu consuming due to amps and pedals modelling. In addition, having armed tracks is also cpu consuming. In a way, GB is holding cpu ressources for the incoming audio data. You can deselecting the armed tracks by first enabling the multirecording control and the main track, and then clicking on the main track.

    Does deleting one or several addictive drums tracks help ? Because 8 addictive drums can put some stress on the CPU and RAM ressources too. One solution is to freeze your tracks, if you don't need to edit them.

    In GB 09 there were no electric guitar tracks...

    this is incorrect, GB5 (09) introduced the "Guitar Track."
