I just started using STUDIO ONE V2 Pro today and immediately started having CPU issues as soon as I started using my VSTI. I have been using FL Studio for 2 years now and never have Ive seen behavior like this before. HP pavillion, Quad Phenom2, 16 gigs RAM upgraded. I am not a newby, so I know how to troubleshoot most of my PC issues and I have even A/B between Studio One/FL Studio. Thing is is that FL doesnt have the issues with the exact same VSTI. I will only have 1 single track loaded and will not even be playing it and Studio One will randomly Spike to 100% cpu. Does anyone have this problem? I am hoping that I am missing something in the settings being that I am new to STOne, I am using the windows 32 version.
many other seem to have this problem on various situation...if i use plugs spike occurs... my 2 cents is studio one in 2.05 doesent "read" correctly the latency settings...it seem like whatever buffer size you put in setup....its go to 64 or 32...and stress the computer...spike and crack welcome !
I also experience intermittent random spikes. Usually while playing Presence synth. I'm running less than ten audio tracks and several midi synth instances. I may also be running around 15 to 20 effects. I have changed my buffer size and it really doesn't correct it (not that this happens every minute) At first my thought it was my computer not having enough power (ram, etc...) now after seeing this complaint several times over it would appear it must be something Presonus is surely working on. After all - they have a top notch development team - That being said - I'll be waiting for my update patch to correct this.
Awesome even with a spike or two. : )

I was experiencing massive spikes after starting a new session and working with EZdrummer - I soon discovered I had another session open in the background loaded with effects, instruments, audio and instrument tracks,etc... once I shut that session down the cpu meter returned to normal and the spikes discontinued -
I was running no other programs at the time - so I'm left to assume that an open session in the background will be taxing the cpu...I'll be working on one open session at a time in the future.
Update: I am working on a new song using EZdrummer along with several other software instruments - While working with EZdrummer I start getting massive cpu spikes so I opened the cpu meter and expanded it to see just what effect or instrument was creating the issue and sure enough it was EZdrummer. I only had three audio tracks and three vi's running. I quickly transferred the EZdrummer track to audio and the problem went away.
I had the same problems with Studio One.
I found out that in audio settings, if Studio One's audio block size is different from the audio card block size the cpu is going mad.
If you make a tick in "Lock" beside block size, studio one is having the same block size as the audio card and the cpu goes down.
I don't know why you would need a different block size in studio one than on the audio card, it doesn't work in my system.
Very frustrated because I really enjoy this program. I am getting pops and massive CPU spikes. They are affecting all of the audio in my computer. It started after I installed Melodyne trial. If any one comes up with a solution I would like to hear it. I have tried all of the above. Not sure why this would be affecting my windows audio driver but it is. Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers... no success... wow. It was working perfectly, hope there is a solution soon.
