SPDIF latency


I’m recording a keyboard through SPDIF, using a midi track to trigger the instrument.

there is a really annoying latency - not so long, but still can be heard - which makes really hard to record.

one weird thing is that once the audio track is recorded - triggered by the midi one - the latency disappear, the recorded audio track is on time as it should be, whereas when it’s played via midi the latency interferes.

don’t sure at all if this is a midi problem or a spdif one, if this is cubase or the audio interface - motu audio express - that makes problems.

version 6.5, mac 10.9.4.

any ideas why?


Some reasons for latency:
-High buffer settings on the soundcard
-Plugins with high plugin delay
