try pruning your smart playlists

Try pruning your smart playlists.

I have about 30,000-odd songs, and lots more audiobooks, movies and podcasts. My iTunes was running like cold molasses until I pruned my smart playlists way down, and set most of the rest *not* to do live updates.

See if doing this helps you too.

I have no smart playlists and only 3 other playlists.... its SOOoooo slow and annoying that I don't do anything anymore with playlists. It is slow without playlists. as someone else indicated, after 30 or 40,000 tracks, the whole thing slows to a crawl.

Somewhere I read that it doesnt even matter if you have more CPU speed to throw at it, its a limitation of the XML storage method, but I dunno.... I only know that its borderline unusable at a certain point.
