Default Problem using sE X1 USB mic

When using this mic with Reaper and monitoring through the mic I get an issue whereby upon hitting Play, sounds ramp up in volume from silence over a period of about a second, ie if I record "one, two, three" and line up the cursor at the start of "one" I won't hear any sound until the start of "two".

I assumed this was a problem with the sE driver but discovered it happens using all compatible drivers but apparently only in Reaper. The problem does not occur in Audacity or Audition and is not affected by buffer size.

Anyone else experienced this or found a workaround? (Other than monitiring through another output - which negates the benefit of the mic's zero latency monitoring.)
