Ok, i'll bite...

What really bothers me though, is the notable increase in CPU usage that makes Live 10 currently unusable for me. Now that really bums me out!
I hope that the dev. team will be able to fix these issues soon, as I really don't want to switch to another DAW, but am seriously starting to look at other options, which really sucks.
but i don't see any details of your issue, unless i missed them. so the standard questions apply;
What OS are you using?
- If OS X, are you using Apple hardware or Hackintosh?
Is it up to date?
Is this a desktop or a laptop?
- If laptop, does the issue occur when plugged in, on battery, or both?
What audio interface are you using?
- Are the drivers up to date?
Are any other cpu hungry background processes running such as indexing, Antivirus tasks, backups, file transfers, etc. running when the issue occurs?
What speed is your hard drive (5400 rpm, 7200 rpm, SSD)?
what solutions have your tried?
oh and... to be sure... are you referring to Live's internal CPU load (inside the application) being high... or the OS CPU load?
Thanks for you help in advance H20nly.
I am on a Desktop Win 8.1 (64 bit) platform and it is up to date
Audio Interfaces used via ASIO4All are either Focusrite 18i8 or Motu Ultralite Mk 4. Both Interfaces are running most recent drivers
When the issue occurs, I make sure to use Task Manager to end all processes that I can, without compromisng the system. Only process left is usually Norton (which is annoying btw)
Live 10 is installed on a 7200 rpm SATA drive, but the Factory packs are installed on a WD My Book 1140 USB Device and I do wonder if this might contribute to my CPU issue. There is one Factory pack in particular that has always been CPU hungry, even in Live 9. I have a SSD and all my 3rd party plug ins are installed on it, but it's not large enough (500gb) to run everything I need. In Live 10, I have run into this issue just by using one instance of Dune and Output Movement. When I disable Movement while running an Arppegiated note in Dune, the CPU notably drops.
I have a AMD A10-5700 with Radeon HD Graphics CPU chip running at 3.4 GHz. I checked if there was a throttling issue with cpuid and it is running at spec.
My RAM is 10gb.
In my Performance options - Processor Scheduling, I've tried either Adjust for Best Performance of Programs or Background Services. Either one of these options has no effect on reducing CPU usage.
And yes, when the issue occurs, it is Live 10's CPU indicator that is busting 100% and causes serious sound drop-outs, while the OS CPU usage is not close to 100% (as per Task Manager monitor).
I do wonder if my platform is getting old, but it seems that others with more recent platforms are also encountering these type of issues.
Let me know if you see any glaring issues H20nly?
