I found this post the Studio One 4 forum that seems to be describing my issue.

Anyone else have this issue? It seems to be when performing any action with the mouse the stutter happens but only does this when the cursor is active in Studio One 5. It also happens sometimes when just moving the mouse around. I will post my PC specs if needed but it is well beyond minimum requirements for Studio One.

I had this same problem on Studio One 4, 5 and 5.1. I finally solved the problem by changing my monitor's G-SYNC settings. I have my monitor set to 144hz refresh rate and turned it down to 60hz, then noticed that the "mouse lag" I was seeing in Studio One was how everything looked at 60hz; this led me to wonder if Studio One was somehow rendering at 60 frames per second when my monitor was at 144hz.

I opened Nvidia Control Panel and navigated to Display > Set up G-SYNC, then changed "Enable for windowed and full screen mode" to only "Enable for full screen mode." This fixed my problem immediately! It seemed as if something about G-SYNC running on Studio One is causing it to have some video tearing or to render at 60fps for some reason.

I don't know if you are running on a G-SYNC monitor, but try this if you are. If not, maybe try playing with some other settings related to refresh rate (FreeSync?) on your machine.
