Hello, I'm new to DAW recording; need some help.

Here's what I did: Created a new song in the Audiobox format. Armed Track 1 to record. Plugged guitar into track 1, and set appropriate levels on the box.

I started playing and there is a delay between the note struck and note heard.Same thing happens when I create a song in "Empty Song" format.

What should I do? Thanks for any and all help!!

Go into Preferences and see what your device block size is set to. I need mine lower than 64 or I get latency like you're describing. Then I bump it up to 1024 when I'm mixing down with lots of plugins running.

Hello! thanks for your response. Maybe you can offer some more avdice?

Here's my situation now...

If I go to STUDIO ONE > OPTIONS > AUDIO SETUP, and set it to Windows Audio, the delay problem goes away. but then I can't hear my recorded tracks.

If i set Audio Setup to Audiovox USB, I can hear tracks but the delay remains. Any suggestions?

Thanks! Larry

You're audiobox has a "Mix" knob...it must be properly adjusted between inputs and playback. Try adjusting that
and see if that doesn't help. Also have a look at this....it may help you understand what's going on with regards
