Severe stuttering, audio dropouts during tempo change (Cubase 12)

Has anyone else had an issue getting really bad stuttering and audio dropouts during a gradual tempo change? I’m going from like 94 down to 74 over a measure with a ramp tempo change and it happens everytime! I’ve been trying to figure out a fix for this but have no idea.

Did you try increasing your buffer size on your interface?

Yeah, I tried that and everything else that I’ve read regarding latency. I have pretty good specs on my pc and only have the issue during the tempo change. It’ll barely run. It’s fine everywhere else.
