Cue monitor lagging

When I punch in,(audio recording) there is a lag before I can hear what I am playing. Record comes on, and cubase records what I play (even the first note) :confused: , but I can’t hear the first note. Any suggestions? I use cue number 1 on the studio mixer. It works fine except for the first second

I’m sorry, I forgot to mention that I am using tape machine style for auto monitor :neutral_face:
