I’m not going to post a typical ‘my computer has latency’ query here- I know full well about the issues with external devices etc…
This is about latency inside of Cubase 6.02
Step 1: create a Groove Agent track
Step 2: Output the audio to a Group Folder
Step 3: Record group folder output to new audio track
Step 4: Compare the start time of the recorded audio with the location of the MIDI note.
In theory, it should be zero, since the audio never left the computer- there are no interfaces or cables or drivers to deal with.
Reality: I’m getting 2668 samples worth of latency. How can this be???
FYI this is as PC, Windows Vista (fully updated and cleaned/maintained), Firewire interface to Alesis IO|26, 3GB RAM, Core2 Duo 8400 3GHZ Processor
