Maschine Mikro Mk3 Input lag in Cubase 12

Recently updated to C12, I like the changes so far but I have run into a annoying issue.

I noticed that my NI Maschine Mikro Mk3 (+maschine 2 software) midi controller suffers from slight input lag in C12. So when you press the pad there is a slight lag before you hear the sound between 20-40ms I'd guess.

I did a comparison with C11 and in C11 there is no such issue present, so it is definitely C12 related.

I checked all the settings between C11 and C12 and they are similar. Same buffers, audio interface settings etc. 

What should I check that could cause this issue?

I have latest Maschine software (2.14) and all the latest drivers. The issue is not present in Cubase 11, only in Cubase 12.

    What buffer size? Any FX on the chain? Master?

    What should I check that could cause this issue?

    Try turning "Constrain Latency Compensation" on/off, it was a button with a clock in previous versions not sure it changed or not; I'm still on V11.
