Ableton's CPU meter never goes above 35%, but according to Activity Monitor it's hitting the mid 80s. Also, the D light in the top right corner never flashes. I've got 26 audio tracks and 1 midi track. I'm using a FireFace 800, but the problem is still there going straight out of my computer's headphone jack.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
When this happens next time open Terminal (In Applications/Utilities) and issue this command:
top -o CPU
followed with a return. What's running in top 5?
