    Has anyone else noticed a steady lag every ~ 10 seconds that lasts for about 10 seconds, then suddenly the editor responds? Editor version 6201 (newest version).

    I can't even scroll in a setting until it stop, then it suddenly jerks. It's also extremely annoying when trying to adjust anything. I don't have this problem adjusting directly on the unit.

    The OS is Windows 10 (latest build version), and I also ran into this on an older PC with Win7, but it was only when using the USB3 ports, and this new PC only has USB 3.0 or later, which shouldn't matter when using a USB 2.0 cable, but for some reason I keep having this constant "blip" of lag, and it's taking me about an hour and a half to adjust a single preset enough to make it playable.

    I also get random software crashes, so I'm wondering if there are some Win10 compatibility issues. If anyone else has had this problem, or knows of the fix to stop it, I'd be all ears, 'cause I've tried so many things to make it stop, and it just doesn't work. It's not a Win compatibility issue; just seems like my AA12 has a problem with timing out when connected via USB 3.0.

    Have you tried a different USB cable?

    I've had no issues with Windows 10 with any version of the editor since 3.0 on my PC, laptop or tablet.

    Yes, four different USB cables, with or without bead cores, in 6 and 10 foot lengths. They don't give me any issues connected to other equipment, so it's not the cables.

    This is almost certainly a Windows/PC issue, likely related to your anti-malware software. One of my machines does the same thing, but the others don't. I haven't narrowed it down to what software/hardware combo is causing it yet, though.

    Could definitely be that as I run Windows Defender on all my Windows 10 devices rather than any aftermarket AV or protection

    Same software between them, and anti-malware is not an issue, as it would have manifested with USB 2.0 as well, which it doesn't. My old PC had both USB 2.0 and 3.0. This new system has USB 3.0 and 3.1.

    It could be driver related, but trying other drivers has yielded no improvement. What is interesting is that the problem existed on the old system with USB 3 ports as well, despite trying multiple controllers. I'll see if it does the same on another machine I'm building for a family member, but I'm going to assume that it will.

    Maybe a clock/refresh speed is an issue, maybe some kind of noise, or...something. I've gone so far as to remove all other USB devices, and use a PS/2 port on the mouse; no dice. I'm starting to run out of ideas.
