Hmm well this audio is off of my internal SSD, and I just tried it on a second internal SSD as well as a external HD, and am getting the same results.
I have 64GB of RAM and a 12-core 3900x Ryzen processor so I would be very surprised if it’s a hardware problem.
Does it not do this for you guys?
What I noticed though is if I click where the delay is and then instantly move my mouse, the cursor pops up really quick. The delay is only there if I click and don’t move my mouse which makes me think it’s something in the Nuendo code.
EDIT: also just noticed it does it on midi events too - so its just ANY content, even an empty event. So yeah doesn’t seem to be a HD problem.
