I’ve been using Focusrite Scarlet 6i6 2nd gen as my interface for a long time but recently upgraded to a new PC. With my new PC which is quite powerful: i7, 64GB and a good SSD I’ve been experiencing quite a bit of lag while recording and can’t figure out what is going on.
I am experiencing the lag with most of the VST amps I play through (mostly Neural DSP) and also with MIDI input with VST instruments even if I seemingly should have around 3ms of delay which should not be noticeable. I can play through Guitar Rig when I have a project with almost nothing in it and go to very small buffer sizes like 64 and get my delay to around 1,5ms. With the Neural DSP plugins I can have an otherwise empty project with 32 buffer size, have around 2ms of latency but still when playing the delay is there. If I use the ‘Constrain Delay Compensation’ it will deactivate the Neural DSP plugins but I know that people use them live with worse computers with no issues. I’ve tried to otherwise optimize the Windows and other settings to get the best performance possible and I am not using a USB Hub. I am using ASIO drivers
I didn’t have such issues with my old PC which had much worse specs than my current one.
Any ideas where the latency might be coming from?
