Recording interruption

Hello, I recently purchased Cubase Artist 8.5 after hearing good things, starting to regret the purchase. I have used and recorded with most other DAWs on my rig (Ableton, Reaper, Studio One, etc) and have never had an issue. When I start to record while monitoring with any third party plug in if I tweak any of the parameters the recording stops and says there has been an interruption, at which point I have to restart the recording. I have changed every setting I can find that has to do with signal flow with no avail. Please tell me I am missing something and this is not the norm. Thanks in advanced for any help. Here are some of my specs.
Windows 10 64 bit
I7 4771
MSI z97 g45 mono
12 Gigs RAM
Focusrite Saffire Pro 26 FireWire interface
Geforce 9500 GT 1 gb video card
Samsung SSD c drive with a secondary SSD for overflow effects and an additional 3 tb hdd for audio.
All drivers and BIOS up to date
Cubase Artist 8.5.

this is not a specific VST it is any 1 I try. Thanks for looking.
