You really shouldnt play with that driver compensation if you dont know what your doing. Its probably exactly that is creating your problem. Im thinking that with every pass you record, ableton is delaying everything by the compensation number, so with every layer record things get more and more out of sync. Try leaving at 0ms and your problems should disapear. What latency is ableton reporting before you play around with the latency compensation?

Bottom line is dont touch it! If its not done right your just making things worst for yourself!!

lame. learn your tools, read the manual if you're scared of it. this isn't complicated stuff.

Ableton can't report the correct latency, I've already posted why.

I know how it works. Im just saying unless you go trough the right steps your doing more damage then good. So do it exactly the right way, or dont do it at all

:roll:

then teach a user how to use it, don't teach him to fear basic features of his DAW. recording audio into Live without setting this doesn't make a lot of sense. this is not difficult stuff.

Calm down buddy. Not the best way to kick the door open and enter a room.

Maybe (calmly and without the rude and obnoxious language) start a thread of your own instead or reviving a 6 year old thread and detail what your issue is, your computer details, your audio hardware and your specific audio settings, sample rate and buffer settings. Delay is almost always caused by incorrectly set up audio (or no audio interface) or a plugin (such as Izotope Ozone) that creates a huge internal processing delay of its own. Issues very easily solved when you know a little about what you are doing.

Or if you really aren't interested to get help, just carry on as is and be sure to switch the lights off when you leave.

I removed waves mastering chain plugin and that solved all my latency whilst recording guitar parts.
