Apparently it works fine under Windows 8, due to the re-written USB code. It also works on USB 3 on the new Macs.
The USB 3.0 stack on Windows 7 is bad. This is not the fault of Propellerhead, but more so the fact that Microsoft never updated it on Windows 7 and instead implemented it correctly in Windows 8. On Windows 8 and with the Windows 8 driver, Balance works fine in USB 3.0 ports.

That said, some users here have had luck running it on Windows 7 and USB 3.0 - it's just hit or miss.
