Multiple Tracks Cause Skips in Audio

Hi, everyone, I'm new to all of this and need to know why having more than one track with BIAS FX 2 causes my audio to skip. My CPU is running 70 - 80 with 2 BIAS FX tracks and a couple of standalone MIDI tracks (no effects). The audio skipping goes away when i delete one of the BIAS tracks. Mind you, both presets are single chain sounds. When i try and run dual chain it skips as well. I am running on the listed specs below with an ASIO driver.
Asus VivoBook X540BA-RB94, AMD A9-9425 3.1GHz Processor with Radeon R5 Graphics, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 1TB HDD, 15.6” HD Display, Windows 10

for starters you need to approach this as if you might be lacking in cpu power and ram - then it is all about settings in host app and soundcard driver (asio on windows)
so what DAW/host are you using? and what soundcard
you only have 8 gigs of ram to work with so you need to make sure to tune your machine for audio - read about your cpu too if you like and you will notice it is not a powerhouse
Ableton Live 10 Intro and both AMD High Definition and Synaptics SmartAudio HD
It sucks cause I just bought this thing and it was recommended for music production. Maybe they're some settings within the plug in that can lighten the load... I'll keep on trying. Thanks

@arodriguez2671 - I'm not even going to look up those "soundcards" - you are most likely just having settings issues with your asio driver for your hardware and software setup - do you have an outboard soundcard preferably usb? or are you trying to use the built in hardware for your laptop.. ? - windows needs a good asio driver if you want low latency multitrack audio
@tafkad No, but I'll be getting one soon. I'm using the soundcard in the laptop and also a little usb speaker.The ASIO i have is the one that is on asio4all.com, version 2.14.
Sometimes, switching from the USB speaker to the laptop speakertakes away the glitching but it eventually comes back.
Cranking up the buffer to 1536 samples just took it away. Is that an alright number to be at?

@arodriguez2671 - you need to use the same soundcard for output in windows so try not using the usb speakers - buy a cheap soundcard there is so many around the $100 mark that will work well
