Ah, I last remembered you saying that you had a copy of version 6, 
but you'd been out on the road too much to do anything significant 
with it yet.  Sorry if I misconstrued that.

Argh, frack!  I just wrote up this huge post addressing logically why 
I probably do need to move everything over to Bidule.  However, 
before hitting send, I thought it wise to do a quick rough in Bidule 
of my setup and check for myself.  It's looking like, for what I 
need, I'm actually seeing about a 50% *greater* CPU hit in Bidule 
over Live.  And that's without even putting in all the elements I 
normally use.  <*grumble, grumble, grumble*>

Thanks for the assistance, though, Per.  I'll try some more tests, 
but this isn't looking so good.  I keep trying to move off Ableton to 
something simpler (not to mention more extensible), but I just keep 
getting sucked back in again.  Sigh...  :P
