I’ve been wondering where does this latency come from. My buffer size is 1024 samples and device setup says that the output latency is 23ms, but when I try to play something it sounds like the latency is actually more close to 200ms, atleast 100ms. It doesnt seem to matter whether I use my east west libraries or for example groove agent one (included with cubase).

-I’m not using ASIO4ALL. Just the drivers that were installed with cubase. ASIO DirectX Full Duplex Driver, it says. I don’t have any inputs active so it shows 0ms for input latency. Right now I’m just testing with Cubase’s virtual keyboard but the problem occured also with a usb-midikeyboard. Also I had the same issue with EDIROL UA-1EX interface.
Interesting… I tried to change the asio driver to “behringer usb audio” or “generic low latency asio driver” and both seem to cure the problem. However, I loose control over output volume. Changing it from windows doesnt do anything, it is just maxed. How can I turn it down if I’m going to use either of those? Also havent tested it with larger projects yet to see if I get performance issues.
I would really need to access the volume trough software, not with any physical controller. Sure I could just use the master fader for that but I’d rather save it for automating fade outs and such. Is there any other way?
