Ive been ahving this odd problem with significant latency when monitoring live sources in Cubase 6.02. Basically if I open up our template or. for that matter, just begin an empty project, I get bad latency when speaking thru the mic. This is independent of the buffer size I use - whether its 128 samples or 2048 it is the same. I am not using any plugins in the signal chain. The Mac is a beefy system as well.
We have an Apogee Ensemble. I thought initially it is a problem with the drivers. Ive updated them to the latest and there are no issues.
The strange thing is that if I go and change the buffer size to something else (doesnt matter what it is) the problem goes away and everything is fine. Or if I tell Cubase to use the internal sound card and then switch back to the ensemble everything is fine again. Both actions seem to “reset” things back to normal.
Ive checked the input/output routing - nothing wrong there. The thing is Ive also tested this in Ableton Live and I dont have ANY latency issues. Anyone else having these issues between the Ensemble and Cubase?? Please help.
