Hi Guys,

We are migrating from Mach3+USS to Mach4+ESS.

We are using Gecko drives.

When jogging one axis, i.e. X-axis it ramps up, runs smooth and ramp down upon release of keybord input. Flawless!
However, if we jog two axis i.e. X and Y -axis simultaniously, they both ramp up, running smooth until we release the keyboard input of one axis. The axis released will stop abrupt and we loose steps.

We've tried changing the buffer size but it doesn't help. We have now ordered a 8Gb (4Gb at the moment) RAM for the computer (windows 10) and also bought a new keyboard. Theese parts haven't yet arrived so we haven't been able to test it.

Any suggestions on what might be the issue?
