Small Delay on recorded audio from midi track

I am trying to record the drum sounds from an Elektron sps-1 mk 1 into cubase 10.5. I am getting a small delay, (0.008 seconds) on the recorded audio track.
Can anyone please advice me on how to get rid of this delay?
and also how to go about the best way to monitor/ Direct monitoring or not?
The sound card I am using is an RME UCX.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
