So I purchased the UR44 and have just read the manual from start to finish. Unfortunately, some parts of the manual were sorely lacking and left me with unanswered questions.
I see the default buffer size is set to 512 samples, which seems to give me horrendous latency numbers. I assume I want to lower this. Is there any information about what I might be able to set the buffer size to on a high performance Windows machine recording 1 - 4 tracks simultaneously?
I am particularly interested in how to use the UR44 to overdub (to a DAW other than Cubase) things like vocals without latency issues. I see that the UR44 has internal DSP functions and can then send the results to the monitor, bypassing the round trip to the DAW. Can anyone point me to a source that steps through the best way to do this? How would I configure my DAW? Would that eliminate enough of the latency for my new track to be synchonized with my existing tracks?
I tried to follow the instructions for the eLicense software. After entering my code (half a dozen times now), it correctly shows “Basic FX Suite”. But when I go to select the eLicenser I want to download, it tells me the following:
Currently, there is no eLicenser connected to your computer which you can download your license to. Please connect an appropriate USB-eLicenser to your computer. In case you do not have any USB-eLicensers available and want to download the license to a so-called “Soft-eLicenser”, please contact the software vendor of your product, to learn how to create a Soft-eLicensor on your computer system.
What is this overly complex licensing scheme even for? What exactly am I licensing. Everything is connected and working. What happens if I don’t follow this “eLicenser” procedure? What will I lose?
