Audio lagging/cutting out Windows and Android

Caustic Song file (optional): 

I've been making this track since Caustic 3.1.x. Now it has a lot of automations, fx, and all synth slots are full. I can't finish it because audio starts lagging and cutting out. I started making it on android and i had no problems at the beginning. After making the bars after the 60th i started experiencing sound lags. I tried the project also on my laptop (i7 6700hq, 8gb ram) but the lag appears again. I changed the latency settings and also tried with asio driver but the problem doesn't solve. Any ideas for fixing the problem ?

audio lags

Thanks ! Well i kinda solved the problem, but i had to sacrifice some polyphony and had to remove some patterns that play together. Now it works on my laptop but my phone still cant handle it.

Ps: I don't know if its on purpose but your song has some off tune notes :d

Can't work with DAW since 2015.

Have you tried increasing

Have you tried increasing your latency setting or changing audio engines?

Hey Joro

Hey Joro
This is a fantastic track . I really like all the retro game like sounds mixed with the modern . When i opened it up on my system here i though I KNOW why he is having LAG as it uses a LOT of modular synths. However i ran it on a very low end Android TV box and experienced NO LAG at all. So i can realy answer your question. You already know that reducing polophony is always a good start and latency settings too. Try shutting any background processes on your Tablet or Phone .You BEAST of a PC is more than powerful to run at least 3 caustics with this file in tandem so it can only be in the way you have Caustic setup on your PC. 

I know this is not much help to you , sorry. Maybe others with more techy knowledge can help you more. Again ... GREAT TRACK. You teach me something also. I DID NOT know you could automate the ON / OFF state of FX. LOL
