I have been struggling with this “issue” for a long time and now whenever I record something I have to manually go in and shift all the events to the right just to have a hope of getting things in time.
This has happened on C9 and C9.5 and seems to reproducible by:
- Open new empty project
Create a VSTi (e.g. Battery) routed to master
hit a note
hear it delayed by quarter to half a second.
I tried this using both the MOTU 828 firewire and aggregate drivers - same thing. Latency buffer set to 256 and 512 and its reporting 6-12 ms. No way is it that in practice. What is causing this?
If I play the notes to the click with the VSTi turned off, its recorded in time but of course when I record while hearing the VSTi I’m hearing I naturally compensate everything so its recorded ahead by that amount. The latency while using the Virus TI is the same.
Anyone struggling with this? Any known work arounds? I see a record compensate parameter which didn’t seem to help.
