Choppy Cursor Movement In Engine Prime

I have a weird issue that recently popped up, and I can’t come up with an explanation. When I am using EP, my cursor movement is super choppy while browsing around and selecting tracks. However, once I load a track and audio is playing, the cursor movement becomes smooth again. The cursor movement will also become smooth for a short while if I click another window other than EP and come back into the program. It seems to be a frame rate thing, as FPS when not playing music plunges. When playing it stabilizes at my monitors refresh rate.

Does anyone have any insight as to why EP would be causing choppy cursor movement/FPS drops?

Is it choppy if you switch auto-analysis OFF?
