Yesterday, I updated Universal Control to the latest version ( While doing this, I only installed the AudioBox and Universal Control components, since I only own an Audiobox USB 96. My audio seemed normal for a few hours. However, after I opened up a YouTube video I noticed that all the outputted audio has become crackily, laggy, and glitchy. I originally had my Block Size set to 16 but after this incident, I set it to 2048. However, I still notice significant audio glitches. I have repeatedly tried to reinstall Universal Control with no luck, even downgrading to the previous version. Also when I don't have Universal Control installed, all of my playback audio is fine. Please Help!

Specs: Windows 10 Pro, Universal Control, PreSonus AudioBox 96 with Firmware v1.12, Intel Core i7-8700K, 24GB DDR4 RAM, GTX 1080 Ti, 550W PSU, 1TB SSD, 3TB HDD.
