In my FL, i always have problems, if my project gots too many instruments and filters and stuff, the cpu goes at 20-30-40 and more, and the sound starts to stutter.

Thats so ennoying, cause i really can't hear any details of the sounds anymore...

I'm procuding with a laptop now, cause my computer gots crashed some months ago.

Like in massive, you can setup how much cpu it needs with eco ultra and high... How can i reduce the rest??

Options -> audio -> buffer size

Buying a dedicated USB audio interface will help too.

And google "ASIO4ALL driver" and install that, (restart if needed) then select it from the Options -> audio -> device drop-down menu.

increase buffer rate get a decent audio interface, shut down all unnecessary other progs as it has been said - and if all of that doesnt work, just bounce things down to audio and reimport :)
