high cpu usage on launch

When I launch the application, without loading anything, my cpu usage spikes to 80% and remains. As a result, after loading a file, playback cuts out. What should cpu usage be when idle immediately following launch?

I am using a macbook pro mid 2012 with the intel 2.5Ghz i5 processor and 4GB of RAM. Understanding that I need to upgrade my RAM, I don't see why the program has such high cpu utilization without even loading a file. Does anyone have any benchmarks for a machine similar to mine? Any suggestions?
