Studio One Won't Use Enough CPU

CPU: 4-core (8-thread) i7 @2.70Ghz

Playing MaiTai just by itself brings Studio One's CPU monitor up to 90-100%, and it even idles at about 50%. There's frequent popping too. I understand that ALL progams limit their own CPU usage because if they used as much as they want, the system would become unstable. However, I looked at the CPU usage meter in the Intel CPU Tuning program and It's literally at 10-15%, even while trying to play several notes at once on a MaiTai patch with multiple FX on it. I hardly ever have anything open in the background while I use S1, and I've got 16 gigs of RAM, so I would have plenty of room for S1 to do whatever it needs to. Is there anyway we can increase the amount of CPU usage S1 will allow itself to use? If not, is there any chance we could get a feature like this added?

Have you tried adjusting your buffer and dropout protection settings?
