Download Assistant Queries

Anyone know if you can turn off aria2 download processing?

For me on an Apple CPU it appears to slow down download speed in favour of getting a potentially resumable download (and that does not always work). I notice Aria2 code is Intel based according to my Mac Activity monitor so wonder if that contributes to this issue.

Unfortunately there also does not appear to be a specific category on this forum to discuss these type of issues with the Ancillary Steinberg Software such as Download assistant , Mediabay and the Library so users can compare notes. Is there a reason for that?
