I just want to determine whether it's Logic or my Symphony's drivers causing that.

In the meantime, I will continue to troubleshoot in hopes of a solution.
Yes, my symphony drivers are up to date.I work in 96k but it's never happened in previous version of logic. I have also tried all buffer settings and they all have a spike when triggering one key in the Q-Sampler. At 1024 it still spikes a good amount, like 15% but obviously worse the more I lower the IO buffer. If I use/play any other software instrument it's ok, no spikes but the moment I use the Sampler and turn on Flex/Follow Tempo, the spike happens in any IO buffer setting.
Here is how to reproduce it:
1. Select an audio apple loop from the browser.
2. Drop it in the Quick Sampler
3. Turn on Flex
4. Play any key
5. Spike jump between 15-25%
My Symphony mkII drivers are the latest so to me it point to the Sampler being the culprit at the moment. Nothing I can do I guess but would like to see if anybody else gets this problem by using the steps above. I would appreciate it.
