Setting up new Mac user account for Logic recording

I'd appreciate some guidance on configuring a second Mac OS user account exclusively for recording in Logic.

Current setup: Focusrite Scarlett OctoPre via optical into Clarett 2Pre via Thunderbolt into MBP 2016.

Application: Live band rehearsal and recording, monitored live through Logic with effects, panning, etc.

Issue: I'm having a lot of problems with crackles and pops. FWIW, I suspect that CPU usage spikes caused by "kernel_task" are messing with the audio. I've taken many steps to clear them up, all to no avail.

Solution: I'm thinking that another user account, stripped of all functionality other than what's needed for working in Logic, may help. (I'm also looking into cleaning the dust out of the laptop which some say can be the cause of excessive kernel_task operations due to overhearing.)

How do I set up the new user account so that all Logic/music related files, plugins and settings are accessible when logged into either account?

Thanks... Joe
