Windows 10, Xeon 6 core CPU, 64GB RAM, SSD disk for program, External USB 6TB HDD for Song Data

Is that perhaps the answer? Studio One's Performance Meter only measures the C drive and my songs live on an external drive?

I have a song open right now with 11 audio tracks, most of them stereo. Playing the song does not make the "Disc" meter move at all.

I would guess that on a 6TB drive 11 stereo audio tracks is effectively zero percent of the drive?

I didn't think that's what the "meter" measured. I would imagine it measures the disc transfer activity as a percentage of its transfer capability. That would make more sense, I think. And it's certainly the way Sonar worked when I used it.
