NI Maschine Mikro Mk3 Input Lag in C12


Recently updated to C12, I like the changes so far but I have run into a annoying issue.

I noticed that my NI Maschine Mikro Mk3 midi controller suffers from slight input lag in C12. So when you press the pad, there is a slight lag before you hear the sound between 20-40ms I’d guess.

I did a comparison with C11 and in C11 there is no such issue present, so it is definitely C12 related.

I checked all the settings between C11 and C12 and they are similar. Same buffers, audio interface settings etc.

What should I check that could cause this issue? The problem only exists in C12, not in C11.

The way how MIDI devices connect to Cubase changed a bit…
How do you set up the “Maschine Mikro”?

The same way I set it up on C11. Just connect it with USB cable. There is no midi port in Machine Mikro Mk3, only USB. Also noticed that it takes lots of time before Cubase plays any sound if I press buttons from controller. Also I noticed that I think maschine makes Cubase crash. It maybe fault of of the Controller/Software.

In C11 it works fine. No issues or input lags.

I don’t know how to explain it any better unfortunately.

The MIDI ports are in the USB…
