If your session has too many dropouts, please first make sure that your internet connection is not blocked by anything else (like downloads or streaming). Reducing the JPG scan rate and JPG quality, or closing the GUI with the "Hide Editor" buitton can significantly take some load of your internet connection. If that is still not enough, please switch to MP3 compression.
