Hey Guys,

I have a Toshiba Satellite L770D - 10G
Windows 7 Home Premium
Studio One 3.3.1 Professional
Windows Audio (Realtek High Definition Audio)

I switched last week from Ableton Live 9 to Studio One 3 and I began to like it and slowly get used to it.
Everything went fine until I tried to open my last Project, It's loads up fine, but the CPU jumps around from 50 to 60 to 100 to 40 etc.
When I try to play back the Song it doesn't replay, when I open up any window in S1 it freezes and I have to shut it down by Task manager.
I looked at the Vsts that were making the CPU bleeding and found out that it doesn't matter how high the CPU is. It is the Instrument (In my case Sylenth1 and Serum) that makes S1 freeze. When I open Sylenth1 and press a button on the keyboard it freezes and my auxhost shuts down Camelphat and dblue glitch without any reason.
I already tried to fix it by turning off the second CPU and tried to use an ASIO4All Driver, but that didn't helped either.

Please help me.

In situations like this, it is best to contact the developer of the problematic plug-ins, they are responsible for ensuring compatibility with Studio One and may offer a solution. Also, make sure you are using the latest version of a plug-in.

Another thing that could be contributing to the problems; you stated you are using Windows Audio and not an ASIO audio interface.

An ASIO driver provides a low-latency and high fidelity interface between a software application and a computer's sound card. Asio4all is a work around, but is not a replacement for an ASIO audio interface.
