Is there a MIDI equivalent to the driver error compensation?

Hello.  I am getting quite a bit of latency with my MOTU MIDI Express XT USB interface when recording and playing back.  I usually have to figure out the track delay amount to make it play back decent.  It does not do it with my other MIDI devices such as the USB interface on my Moog Little Phatty or the Novation Remote Zero.  I have checked that my MOTU interface has the latest drivers and everything.

So I am wondering if there is some driver error compensation tool for MIDI like there is for audio?

Thanks!

    The Driver Error Compensation function addresses latency incurred by your audio card. It's basically compensating for the time it takes for your audio cards driver's to process the audio signal.

    With MIDI, things are different because there may be different factors contributing to the delay, such as how many devices you have in your chain & the length of your MIDI cables. You may also be using various MIDI I/O.

    As such, this cannot be address on a global level.

    What does your MIDI chain look like once the signal leaves your device?
