So I just upgraded my system. Before the upgrade the Studio 26 usb interface was working just fine, but after I get no sound on start up. I can get sound to play through if I upgrade the firmware through the universal control app. It doesnt change the firmware as its the same version it just rewrites it. The audio will then work unless I switch apps or programs then I have to do the whole process again. That is the only solution that has worked. I have updated bios, tried every usb port, did a fresh install of windows, and deleted and reinstall the Studio 26 drivers and universal control app. I have also gone in and unchecked the option to allow applications to take exclusive control of this device. One thing that does strike me as kind of strange is that when I go to update Universal Control it says My version is up to date but shows the installed version as 2.9 and the current version as 2.8. I have attached two pictures with a bunch of info that could be of help. Thank you in advance.

MSI x470 M7 AC / motherboard

16gb G. Skill TridentZ DDR4-3200 / Memory
