Upgraded my PC to the new 4th generation Haswell i7 processor, and on this brand new super fast configuration my UR824 skips the sound every 2-3 seconds in Cubase 7, as well as in any other Windows application. Tried the UR824 on my laptop and it works flawlessly there, but it does not work on the new Haswell configuration.
Intel i7 4770
Asus Gryphon Z87
8GB DDR3 (Corsair XMS 1600Mhz)
Samsung 840 120GB SSD for system
Samsung 840 250GB SSD for samples
Hitachi 3TB HDD for storage
UR824 firmware: 1.5
UR824 driver: 1.7.3
Win 7 64 bit, optimized for background services and for best performance
Tried it on USB3 and USB2 ports, rolled back driver, tried with 1.5, but skips still occure, although time shortened, same with driver 1.6… I also found Yamaha Steinberg USB driver 1.8 on Yamaha website, and it does not solve the problem either.
Any help on this is very much appreciated!
