GUI almost unusable due to time lag when using mouse controls.

Open a ‘New Project’ with default settings. No other project or track is opened and nothing else loaded. In the main window using the mouse, select the horizontal scroll bar and move to right. Nothing happens for approx 3 - 4 sec then the window scrolls (jumps) to the right but only half way to where the mouse arrow stopped . If moved in opposite direction there is again a 3 - 4 sec delay and a jump by the play head.

If a plugin or FX is selected from right hand side window and dragged to the main window nothing happens for 3 - 4 sec. Items selected with left mouse button highlight straight away but do not react (move or open) for at least 4 seconds.

Menu items open almost instantly when selected with the mouse. Also, ‘most’ key commands work fairly normally (after 1 - 2sec). Sound/playback seems unaffected

All drivers for graphics and sound cards are up-to-date. Nothing else is running in the background.

System was smooth and working flawlessly with CB 9.04.0

Well that’s not normal and clearly isn’t a widespread problem or this forum would be blowing up.

I bet the key to sorting it out is in the DAW description that isn’t included in your signature (hint, hint :wink: )

Sorry, should have posted this as well.

Yes the RAM ‘could’ be a little low but the spec of the pc has not changed since running 5, 7, 8 and 9.4. All ran smoothly without any hitch. Also tried 9.5 which shows exact same issue.

pc spec: Win 10pro x64. RAM - 6GB
Graphics Card - GT 230
Sound Card - Creative Audigy Pro 2ZS

Out of those specs, the GT 230 would most likely be the problem.
