I'm trying now the new update. I won't know how well it is till I finish a piece of music with it. my main concern is the stability in what I do, so for that I have disabled some midi/audio options that I don't need like retrospective recording and release asio when in the background... etc.

I'm using buffer 128 as 64 makes NI Super 8 crackles. So far so good. The reason I don't want to give up S1 is the workflow and whole design. I slightly prefer it more than Cubase and Live (although I like the devices in Live the most). Anyway, S1 has scratch pad which can substitutes the clips in Live for me ( this is the main use of clips in Live for me).
Cubase Pro 11, Studio One Pro v5, NI, Arturia, u-he, Synapse Audio, Kilohearts, Korg, Sugar Bytes, PA and others.
PC with Win10, MODX 6, KeyLab MK II, iTwo interface, ATOM, DT 990 Pro and HS7 monitors.

Studio One used to be incredibly unstable on Macs, with constant crashes, CPU spikes all the time for no good reason, etc.

It has come a long way in the last 1 or 2 years, I can say that for sure.

The weird, random CPU spikes are gone entirely, the crashes are (mostly) gone -- I'd say it crashes about as often as any other DAW on a mac, at this point, though actually Live crashes more on my system these days -- and the overall experience feels smooth, solid and (dare I say) reliable in a way it simple did not in the past. It was a long-time coming, for sure, but it's quite a relief.
