Controller Latency issues AKAI MPD26 ?

So basically, I've bought an Akai MPD 26. I've plugged it in and after a bit of fiddling around managed to get it working. Unfortunately when I hit a pad the sound doesn't come until about 1/32 of a beat later. I also use an M audio keyboard with no such problem. I've tried switching my drivers etc but it hasn't helped at all. Any ideas as to what I should do would be really appreciated, cheers

    I found a temporary solution. Try deleting any 3rd party plug-ins one at a time and see if it goes away. CMX by Schwa was on a return and it affected the MIDI timing for everything. As soon as I deleted it, latency improved.

    asio4all works phenomenal i actually have the same set up!! mpd26 and oxygen 49 on an Asus laptop with Ableton...once i realized that you cannot use your DAW and browse vanything with sound online and figured out the exact latency and sample rate to set it works asaihap (as soon as i hit a pad) lol

    What was the "exact latency and sample rate to set" to?
