I just replaced my old mac with a 2015 iMac I7 4Ghz with 16G ram and a 2TB fusion drive.  The replacement mac keeps freezing and shutting down with Studio One (latest 4 version)

It came loaded with Catalina and it kept freezing so I took it back to Mojave to see if that would help.  It has not made any difference.  Sometimes it freezes right away.  Sometimes it takes 5 minutes but it seems to consistently freeze.

Is there something I could be doing wrong or is there something wrong with this mac I just purchased.  

Thanks for any information.

Day 2:  Now, almost every time I go to close a plug in the program crashes and restarts.

I've had the same problem ... every couple of weeks, I'll be working on a mix and boom, the sound drops, then the program crashes.  I  close and reopen and re-load the project ... but it just does it again.  If I change projects it will stay, but until I open a ticket and get help, that project keeps freezing.  Tech fixes, then 2-4 weeks later, different project ...boom.  Start all over.  Have you figured it out?
