100% CPU usage, causes background music to stutter//pause

Apr 11, 2013 9:44 AM

Hey, I asked this question before but didn't find the answer I was looking for.


This issue happens when drawing with the brush (before lifting my wacom pen for the lines to get optimized) or any action where calculations are being made (like skewing).  As I'm drawing lines, the CPU jumps to 100% usage and my sound (playing off a USB sound card) stutters or pauses.  Once I let go of my action, CPU usage comes back down and music resumes.  I just installed new drivers, but the problem persists.  This happened before using a soundcard as well.


Windows 7 64bit

2.8 core duo



Thanks for helping !
