2048 is huge for buffer size! Have you tried dropping that to 512? Sometimes you can get away with 256 if you have a decent system and audio interface. At worst you should be set at 1024. Too large a buffer is almost as bad as too little and can cause as many problems.

Ok. I downloaded the demo. It looks like you are using a WDM driver which leads me to believe you are using your standard soundcard or a Soundblaster. That being the case, download asio4all and install it. Once you have that set up, open Mixcraft and go to File/preferences. Change the option from wave to ASIO, then go to the drop down menu and select ASIO4ALL. In the asio4all menu you should be able to resize the buffer. That should both bring your latency down considerably as well as eliminate the "skipping" problem. You may have to play with the settings a bit to get it right.
