Audio isn't being recorded at the beginning

I have updated to 2.2.2, and previosly had 2.2.0. In both versions, the beginning of the recording is skipping. If I allow the recording to run for 10 seconds before speaking everything is fine. It happens consistently.

I have a sound interface Scarlett 18i6, and everything is up-to-date. I've uploaded the sound file - it's missing a clear recording of the words "Hello my name is Cromerty".
