Cubase Artist 9.5 PC.
Mode: low latency.
Delay compensation on.
ASIO guard on (normal).
Direct monitoring on.
System timestamp for Windows midi checked.
Using any VST instrument and the AKAI MPD218 as the controller, pad hits are recorded approximately 1/6th note too early. They sound in time during recording, but when record is stopped and the notes appear, they are and playback too early.
Using my master controller keyboard (Roland XV88) notes are right on the money, again with any VST instrument.
I have tried changing most available config options within Cubase with no change.
Hoping someone can provide some insight.
