asked Feb 28, 2016 in Studio One 3 by ebermoctezuma (160 points)
Im using my audiobox USB iTwo to record guitar, keyboards, and vocals. The recording software I use is Studio One 3.2 Artist but regardless of what I do, there's always a ridiculous amount of static in the background and my CPU bar in the performance page is constantly pushing the 50%. I've tried turning it off and on multiple times, fiddling around with the mics, used different mics, used different MIDI cables to connect, but nothing I do can get rid of it. Sometimes if I'm lucky, after a while of fiddling around the static goes away. But it always comes back once I turn the interface off and back on again.     I have a ASUS computer with windows 10 if that makes any difference.     Please help me!
