How Latency Is Caused
How Its Solved
- You should always try and keep your 'round-trip' latency under 11ms.
- Never set and forget your buffer settings. Each project is different, so experiment and see what the lowest settings that specific project can handle. Note: as the project grows, you may need to raise your buffers.
- Always have the latest drivers installed on your PC or MAC. Make sure you check monthly to see if there are any driver updates form your sound cards manufacture's website.
- Use Zero Latency Monitoring when monitoring what you are recording. With this the signal is slip and one of the two signal is sent to the sound card's main outs and the other one is sent to your sound card's converters and into your DAW. Most sound cards support this feature.
