Audio Latency with Focusrite Interface - doesn't make sense?

I recently managed to get my system working pretty much flawlessly with this hardware:

- Intel Core i5-6500
- MSI H110M Gaming MoBo
- HyperX Fury 1x8GB RAM
- Gigabyte WindForce GTX 1060 3GB

Graphics are all perfect and recognised by macOS in the settings etc.
One problem I've encountered is that despite having buffer sizes set to the minimum setting of 32 samples, there is a distinct audio latency problem occuring in Logic when input monitoring is turned on - Direct Monitoring on my Focusrite Scarlett Solo interface is perfectly fine however when using this USB interface there is a very noticeable lag, even on minimal settings that would work fine on my PC.

Does anyone know if this is just a Logic problem? Or do I need some sort of ASIO / Driver? (Keep in mind lower-end Scarlett interfaces run class-compliant in macOS so no need for their drivers etc.)

Would the audio drivers in MultiBeast help although as I understand they're only useful for onboard sound cards?

Thanks, I'd appreciate any users with a similar experience hardware wise letting me know how they got around this, or if it even happened at all.

Did you find the issue? I have sort of same situation now. Also using Logic.
