Input Latency Issues on Live 9

I've had my computer for 2 years now and I've never been able to record in real time whether it be audio or midi. I can edit and playback with zero difficulty, but whenever I go to record any kind of signal there's about a one-second delay between when I press a key on my keystation or play a note on my guitar and when it actually gets recorded.  So far the only way I've been able to make this work is by manually warping each clip about an 8th note back to make it be in time after I've recorded it, but I'm sick of doing this and want to actually fix the problem. 

I've tried everything I can find on the internet. Downloaded ASIO4ALL (Didn't help at all), changed the input preferences, and I'm beginning to look seriously at attempting voodoo on this damn thing if I can't get it to work.


Any ideas?



My Computer:

OS: Windows 8.1 (64 bit system)

CPU: Intel Core i5-3330 @ 3.0 GHz


Input Device: M-Audio Fast Track, Keystudio 49

    I have a UA Apollo Quad on FW800 into my Mac Pro and still have horrific and unacceptable MIDI latency.

    Live does a lot of cool things, but integrating external MIDI controllers is not one of them.  I've never gotten it to work on Live in the 5 plus years I've been using it.  3 minutes after using Logic X, it worked flawlessly.  Of course, there are other elements of Logic X I despise, but the inability of Live to integrate an external MIDI controller for an internal soft synth has finally made me move to a different and more complete DAW.

    I had an M-Audio USB M-Track and the latency on it was pretty bad too. 

    I ended up replacing it with UA Apollo Quad and added a TI Firewire 800 card to my PC.

    Problems all went away...
