Transport stalls before playing

Hey yall,

So I recently updated to 11.0.20 and have just now started to get an issue where every time I try to get the transport to begin playing (recording, playback, etc.) there is a brief pause (about 1.7 seconds consistently) before playback actually begins. I’m on a Mac running Catalina, and have tried opening in safe mode, reinstalling the software, and removing preferences, and nothing seems to change the issue.

Has this happened to anyone else? And if so does anyone have any solutions?

have you got pre-roll activated?
