If the host maxes out easily, it is not optimized. I've always had a terrible time with FL in cpu use REGARDLESS of computer.
Hosts are really really strange. Even with computers supposedly being "faster" there are many hosts that are just not optimized efficiently. Reaper is of course the exception, but we're not supposed to mention that.......oh........wait......DOH!

I think the Fiio is just an amp more or less--I dunno, I really bought it just so I had something I could take on the road. Fingers crossed!

Hosts can only balance the overall load, and only to some degree (any serial chain, e.g. insert effect chains, cannot be parallelized).
Moreover, if a plugin runs single-threaded and consumes say 90% of a core, there's nothing the host can do about it. This is why multi-threading plugins is getting more popular. Of course that creates new problems, if every plugin did this there could be thousands of threads running in parallel and thus creating overhead.

Yes, I said sonar too!
The opposite to my experience. FLS is very thrifty on resources. Can get more instances of say, ACE, in FL than Reaper or S1. These personal computers can be so personal sometimes.

Just one. It occurs later on in the session, I dunno by what hour or so. My CPU hovers around 15-20% CPU when nothing else in the background is running and I have "disable all plugins" selected. Is that normal? I've even scrapped every Waves plugin for FL stock (unfortunately). Still having issues. I tried switching my soundcard to my Focusrite VRM, same thing. I even ran a full virus scan today. I love this program so much it hurts--literally!

Open a thread on the Imageline support forum or email support, describing your issue with as much detail as possible. The helpful support staff could send you a debug version to track down problem. I had a weird issue with K4 bridged and my audio card that they tracked down and solved that way.
