    Specs:
    13" MBP - 2.7 Ghz, Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM.
    Have I maxed out GB?
    I installed 4GB RAM specifically to work in GB. My project roughly has about 60 real/software instruments and it's now occasionally freezing, giving me the "Part of the project could not be played" error. Does this mean I've maxed it out? In Preferences, I have everything set to Automatic.

    RAM wouldn't help out much with that, playing 60+ tracks with their own settings, effects, and EQ (if that applies), you will be using every bit of what your processor has. A 2.2GHz processor will be cooking doing that kind of work, Have you tried locking some of the tracks that do not need to be edited? It will write the tracks to the HD, freeing up the processor.

    Also, If you have any other programs (iTunes, Safari, a word processor, Photoshop, etc etc) try closing them. Sometimes when GB gives me that error, I close some programs, and lock a few tracks and it will be just fine after that.

    Try and save/load all your projects to/from an external HD.
    Never keep them on the system disc.

    Specs:
    Mac Mini 1.25Ghz G4 1gb RAM, Mac Pro G5 Dual 1.8GHz 4GB RAM, MacBook Air 1.6 GHz Core2 Duo 2GB RAM
    Also, if you are happy with a few of the instruments, render them (don't know if GB lets you render seperate tracks) and reimport them as audio.
