noticed that if the MIO console is in the background (ie: Mio console is open but Im in my daw and want to turn down the monitoring via the monitor knob on the ULN8 unit or mute or dim via the physical button on the ULN8)-- the pots are quite jumpy and the mute/dim buttons are almost completely unresponsive (can take upto 5-6 depressions to take).
If MIO console is in the forefront- everything is snappy and works on first go no problem.

Anyone else notice this?
happens when using both Logic Pro X and Harrison Mixbus.

Ah, yeah - I think we forgot to mention that in the release notes - we disable App Nap on a programatic level so that the OS doesn't interfere with those updates.

well that seems to have done the trick - I was testing it, even moving faders on the control surface (connects via USB) while adjusting the monitor level and it didnt jump skip or anything other then do what I was telling it to do.
