Hoping this is a simple noob audio recording question! Running Cubase Pro 9.0.1 on Win 10, using a MOTU 828x interface via USB2. Been working ITB with no issues, and have now added a Roland TR-09. No problem recording the TR-09 kik signal into an audio track, issue is with latency i think. No issues with direct playback of TR-09 pre-recording, it’s locked in time and bang on to the metronome. However when i record the audio down it’s slightly delayed as per the screenshot below, and sounds later against the metronome. This is using either MIDI from the 828x to the TR-09 or attaching the TR-09 via USB to PC.
Settings in Cubase are as follows…
So I guess my initial question is, is this expected behaviour? If so do people also edit the audio they record so it’s bang on time? Else use the “Track Delay in Ms”?
If this isn’t expected behaviour what am i doing wrong, seems it shouldn’t be that tricky to get audio to record to an accurate time… PC is newish with SSDs, 32Gb RAM etc, so i don’t see this is a resources issue. And LatencyMon finds no issues…
