Just started getting mysterious audio dropouts

HI all

I just today started to get mysterious audio dropouts. Of course this issues are common so I went through all my usual fix checklist. I rebooted, tried a different file, turned off other programs running in the background, then updated my drivers and firmware of my fireface ufx. My buffer is set to 2048 so there is no way I should be getting any dropouts at all, but I am.

Any ideas on what may be causing this?
