Delay when recording vocals :(

Post by TheDrop2 » Thu Dec 16, 2010 3:59 pm

Theres a delay when i record vocals so its hard for the singer to stay on beat because they hear their voice come back slightly delayed. It is also recorded delayed. I tried adjusting some of the preferences but i could only get it to be at .1 ms delay. Even at this small of a delay it is still noticeable. This problem usually happens when i have compressors & other plugins on tracks. Do you think it might be my Audio Interface? i use an Mbox 2. Or maybe computer something is going wrong with hardware? I use a iMac i5 4gb. 7200 rpm.

The plug-ins are probably causing the latency. Live has an extra buffer for VSTs and AUs which can be set in the Preferences.
