vdeck.exe conflict high cpu usage (track change lag)

 I have a serious problem where switching tracks causes my CPU usage to go to and beyond 100%, causing heavy system lag, as well as momentarily halted playback at times, whenever I play a track (this counts for changing songs and repeating the same track).
 For normal playback it's manageable even with games when priority is set to low on winamp.exe and vdeck.exe. For those who don't know vdeck.exe is the VIA HD AudioDeck for configuring the VIA HD audio driver. After a long time of playing with it it seems the only solution is to turn end process vdeck; however, I need this application for it's Acoustic Echo Cancellation(AEC) ability for talking with friends etc so they don't hear my music and games, disabling this isn't really an option.
 Changing more than one track without waiting at least 5 seconds in between causes a total system lockup for up to a minute(possibly more if I decided to try and skip dozens). Mouse stops moving and music stutters and/or stops. Once returning to normal operation after mouse lock ups, if you'd tried to do anything while it was frozen it'd make a low "boop" sound. (Same thing happened to me before when a couple plugins conflicted in chrome causing over 100% cpu usage when loading pages.)

summary: playing and switching tracks causes winamp.exe and vdeck.exe to try and horde all cpu time despite priority settings, doing so quickly causes system bog-downs

I've done a lot of looking around and trying things out. The issue is only Winamp conflict with vdeck.exe, the issue does not appear to be plugin related. Other players such as MPC-HC and AIMP don't have this issue however they do not have the functionality I use Winamp for. The issue is consistent with reboots and re-installs and file-type makes no difference.
