audio card strange problems
I have a Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 audio card and working about setting the best audio buffer for the low latency timing I found almost 3 strange problems. in order to test my setup I connected my moog via midi to the card, i made a midi loop whit quarter notes and after I recorded the moog's audio output.
1- At 128 samples I have a lower latency than 64 samples
2- If I set a bigger "driver error compensation" in ableton the sound is recorded before then the midi loop playing
3- If I zoom the recordings I can see that there is no the identical delay for all the notes, also if I made a loop whit 4 quarter notes. Ableton tell me that the delay is 0 but you can see with your eyes that is not identical for every note.
Is it normal???
there's a fourth problem I found....if I try to work with monitoring actived on an empty ableton project I can find the latency near to 0 putting the buffer on 64samples but with the same set up on a full project I have a bigger latency. I know that is due to the CPU charge but I want to know how can some musicians (as ben frost for example) work playing their instruments live directly into ableton?
