Issues Running Audio through Scarlett 2i2 USB with eGPU

Hey All,

I recently set-up an eGPU for use with Video/Motion Graphics work and have managed to work through most of my issues (thanks to all you beautiful people), but the one thing I'm still stuck on is that when I'm using Adobe Premiere or After Effects I get choppy audio playback on the Scarlett box I usually use for monitoring sound.

The only workaround I've found is to plug a different set of headphones into my monitor and run it through that, but it's not ideal, so wondering what people think.  There's no audio lag otherwise off of Spotify for example while I'm running the display off the eGPU, but in the Adobe suite it drops out every few seconds.  Any help would be much appreciated!

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
