I am increasingly suspicious of Windows 11, as my issues with Studio One seem to multiply with each little OS update. Since I bought my current laptop, earlier this year, music production has gone from smooth as silk to something of a nightmare. Now that we've got our EP out the door, I am going to get to the bottom of it but I really want to avoid a reinstall of everything if I can.

I’m very happy with Mac OS 13.

I also suspect Win 11! Things are not very smooth as in Windows 10 before or Mac OS 12 (I haven't upgraded yet to Ventura). Strangely, FL Studio the latest update is running very smooth with Windows 11! Also Reaper the latest one! I suspect that some DAWs haven't updated to match the latest update of Windows 11! Man! This is a headache! I need Windows Security updates but it might be not possible to be with the latest updates with a stable smooth audio production in some DAWs! Although I feel it is random! Some DAWs are perfect now with the current OS, then things completely changes when there is another update!!

I think you guys may have a point with Win11. I don't remember having these issues with Win10.

One issue I noticed with all DAW's is that I get crackles when I open up Chrome browser when music or single instruments are playing.

Good notice! I need to shut down all other software while music making.

Oh man! I logged on my mini mac and everything (all DAWs including S1 and all plugins in AU) playing so smooth without any problem! Almost all plugins use less cpu!! Inspite of my PC Ryzen is easily faster than M1.

The only two DAWs that work very well on my Wndows 11 are FLS and Reaper! Maybe because they are Windows centric DAWs? I mean they run better on Windows (including 11).
Also, it seems VST3 plugins have much more bugs than AU versions! So, who knows? Maybe VST3 is a shitty format!

What's weird is that I never had a better result in LatencyMon than on my current desktop PC using Windows 11. Of course, I didn't open the browser during the test. ;)

I run the LatencyMon for 5 mins and it doesn't seem there is a problem. I suspect that the problem in general is the overall Audio performance in Windows 11. To be specific, VST3 with Windows 11.

still waiting for presonus to release a browser that can tag instruments/vst presets properly,no point in having track presets,instrument presets etc. if we can't use them in an efficient manner. alot of us who create content need fast access to our user sounds without scrolling. the browser needs a huge update

What exactly this tagging is doing? What is the actual use? What is the point of tagging, say, a 909 kick, if it is already listed as 909 kick?

All browsers are extremely resource hungry, but Chrome is the worst offender.

I don't know. It never was an issue on my Windows 10 computer.
