midi latency

Hi all,

I seem to be getting a lot of latency only when using my midi controller keyboard.

The device setup says that I have an input latency of 3.878 ms and an output latency of 5.986 ms. I’m using an audio interface over firewire, and my keyboard is attached to that interface via a midi cable.

When I play a guitar DI into the interface I can hear the guitar on my monitors almost immediately. But when I play a note on my midi controller keyboard, it takes more than a quarter of a second for the sound to come out of my monitors.

Changing my buffer size does not seem to help.

Any help is appreciated!!

Need some more info…ie Computer specs, Keyboard and interface

I’m running a core i7 with 8 gigs of ram. I’m using a motu 8pre. the keyboard is a bit old, uit’s an M-Audio keystation 88
