This should be an easy one. In "Task Manager > Processes" Studio One.exe is set to Normal. Other DAWs (such as Cubase) defaults to High. You can manually change this by right clicking on Studio One.exe and going to "Set Priority > High". It would be very nice if it was already the default, though. I'm using Studio One Pro 2 x64 on Windows 7 64-bit with a FireStudio Mobile, and I often get clicks and pops during playback. Setting the Priority to High seems to prevent that.

I checked and mine was the same. Not having any real problems but I changed it. We'll see if it makes a difference.

One note about changing the process priority for anyone who might want to try it out: it is not advisable to set to "Realtime" because it is fairly unstable. You'll could crash Studio One or even lock up your computer just trying to change to "Realtime."

If you do manually change the Studio One.exe priority to High, it will still load with Normal priority next time you launch Studio One, which is why I'm requesting the default be changed.

Windows gives processor priority to the elevated program on demand, rather than making it wait in que.

Still not added in 2.5.1.

I checked Cubase 7, and it sets the priority to "High" by default.
Shouldn't Studio One, too?

Put this in the target field of your shortcut properties:

After that it changes your icon, but you can reassign the S1 default in the properties if you point it to the S1.exe!

But of course for the FR
