I'm not running any plugins etc just the mai tai or presence and I'm getting cpu spikes. I watch the performace monitor and it just jumps into clipping. I gather this is a flaw in the design of Studio One which I wasn't aware of when I purchased the pro version of the DAW. Will this be fixed as it looks like an old problem which Presonus are aware of and haven't fixed. I would like to know as I would consider seeking a refund if this problem isn't going to be sorted.

In the lower right corner of Mai-Tai is a quality setting. Some presets requires a lot of CPU for high performance real time audio. If your CPU is being challenged, then try a different quality setting.
