I have very high CPU peaks with Waves Plugins (on tracks, master bus and so on).

I do not remember to have this before the last update Studio One Pro
The session is unusable except after disabling all plugins ...

My desktop is equiped with an i5-7500 with 16Gb RAM, SSD disks and  a GeForce GTX960 on W10

I have a laptop Lenovo P7 Thinkpad on W10 equiped with i7, 16Gb and SSD and CPU minimum load is 40% after charged a 27 tracks session.

My audio interface is a Focusrite Scarlett SCARLETT 2I4 with the latest available driver (

I did all steps explained on the following post but issue still persists.

I'll open a support ticket with Presonus, Waves and Focusrite.

If it helps, I'm a newbie on Studio One Win x64 (Built on Oct 30 2018) with just the native add-ins installed and not experiencing any crashes on an older Pentium 4-core CPU with 8Gb of RAM. Maybe the extra plugins/goodies causing you problems? Hope that helps the developers figure it out.

My Studio One v4, also started crashing recently. It crashes when I try and extract audio from a video to a track. This is without any other tracks, and no plugins loaded. It gives the error that it is plugin related. But I haven't installed any new plugins recently. Is it the case that some of the Presonus plugins have been updated?

I have been having the same problem, over and over and over. Im a newbie to studio one.

I hoping for a solution, or I will drop studio one like a hot potato. I don't let this stuff waste my time.

I'll tell you what I did SH, my file name was long. So what right?

I saved the file with a short name and instead of 00 and the name I called it 01 and the name.

It stopped crashing? It it a fluke? I'll let you know. But if you do have a long file name, try that for sh**ts and giggles.

I had come on here to see if anyone else was having the same problems as myself. I can do very little mixing before Studio One Professional sticks at a certain time point or refuses to play any sound. Yesterday I was lucky if I got 5 minutes of work done at any given time. I thought about removing the software and reinstalling but it appears this is has everything to do with the new 4.6 update. I never had any problems before that.
