Use your axiom to trigger the sample and after doing every step of the lesson , you won't feel the latency anymore. I have an Axiom too...

Say you have your output level set at -3db, but you want the final output to reach -1dbs. The make-up gain will fix that. All of these levels have varying effects on your final output, hence "pumping sounds" and loss of dynamics. U seem to make a difference between db and dbs... if so what is it?
