It's a Novation Impulse 61-key controller that had not problems up until I moved (thus the reallocation of space around me and me requiring an extension). DAW is ableton and the drivers for the device still seem to be functional and running up until I disconnect it. I will try the new cable to see if that fixes it since it is the cheapest option. But I've never heard of this issue happening to anyone else. Hopefully that's all it is.
Thanks for your insight. I always think the worst so those crossed my mind as well. In either case I should have an answer on Thursday (2 day shipping). I can update this thread with the results of that when that time comes. For now I was just curious if it happened to anyone else.
