I am pleased to report I have identified that it was audio latencies that were the cause of erratic behaviour in CW keying speeds.
For several days I couldn’t figure out why the iambic Key was either too quick or too slow on me. My CW isn’t perfect but I can Key and i couldn’t figure out how to configure weights of dots and dashes, speeds etc. All in fact was not a CW configuration issue but rather a VAC audio latency issue. I disabled by accident the VAC I had setup that delivered input / output audio to Microsoft SoundMapper and picked up the headphones instead ... and suddenly the keying was just a bliss ...

So if you have similar issues getting your dots and dashes in a row, have a check of your audio latencies... maybe VAC is the issue.

Cheers and best 73’s
