Please fix the crazy CPU spikes in the latest version of Studio One. the pops and crackles are unbarable. Ive reduced my plugins to tax the cpu per S1 control pannel to 30 % but they spike up to 70% with cracks, etc....This is unbarable.
I have already optimized my pc as advised and have a fast laptop with plenty of RAM.

Please help..dont want to have to use another DAW.

Please take a look at the following information to try to troubleshoot this issue:

1. Set Options > Audio Setup > Processing > Dropout Protection to Maximum. Please read up on DropOut Protection in the Studio One Reference Manual.

2. If you open the performance monitor in Studio One, you can view the resources that are being used by each of your plug-ins. See if you can find a particular plug-in or set of plug-ins that might be causing the issue. On one of the songs that you are having high CPU usage, please open the performance monitor, press "Show Devices," expand it so it shows as much info that will fit on the screen, make a screenshot of this.

Please send the screenshot to Technical Support.
