Latency Problems When Recording

Post by samurai1 » Wed Feb 04, 2015 9:18 pm

Hi all,

Basically I am running Ableton on Windows 7, 64 bit, fairly powerful laptop...

But I cant seem to get rid of the latency when recording vocals.
When I try to record over the beat, there's a terrible delay.

I have tried everything I know of to lose the delay, and this is now becoming a huge problem slowing me down and it needs sorting out.

I have a picture of my preferences, but I cant figure how to attach it to this. IF anyone cant tell me how I will happily attach it.

Use direct monitoring on your interface.

Turn track monitoring for your vocal track to OFF (not IN or AUTO).

...when you monitor through your Interface (what you should do!) it's important to setup the "driver error compensation":
