Punch In/Out not smooth since ~v7

Apologies for the duplicate post, but I realized that this is probably a better place for this:

Has anyone else noticed this? Punch in/out used to be seamless and undetectable, but ever since around (I think) ~v7 there is a short audio drop out between the time I hear the recorded track and my live performance (I use tapemachine mode). It’s pretty distracting and doesn’t exactly nurture a great take.

Was hoping this would go away with new versions of the software or when I upgraded my computer but nope. Hopefully I’m just missing something…?
