My pc is a brand new HP.  4 GB RAM. 64 bit.  Intel Celeron CPU 2.4 GHz.  Windows 10.

My external HD is a WD My Passport Ultra 1TB.

Is this an sufficient external HD?  Or is my problem due to my settings being wrong?

The problem may not be your hard drive. However if it is a 5400 RPM HDD then it may not work very well within Studio One.

 

The more glaring issue is your computer's overall spec.

Your processor, which is a very key component, does not meet specification for Studio One.

Celeron processors are not suitable for audio recording. They are designed around word processing, web browsing, and listening/watching media.

You would need at least a Core 2 Duo processor (i3+ would be better) to meet spec for S1 or any PreSonus hardware.
