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!

    You are So not clear about this. Midi compensation??? Not covered!

    There are a number of threads about this problem. Will DEC fix this. ????

    IE: 'Same device used'. When recording MIDI. First Track sounds on time. Second take with midi. a little off. Third take with midi. Turns into a timing nightmare.(Yes it is the midi converting to audio. plus what ever midi delay there is from the Midi Device) This also May have something to do with Warp. Not being able to be disabled completely. No other DAW has this problem. They are all smart enough to compensate for midi devices and conversion to audio. Time and Time again. I find in every thread about this problem. You will not Answer it. Or point to a solution. This is a major FLAW!!! Please Fix it! And Report back. Otherwise. If you can not use midi in recording. Then Live is . Only useful in Live performances. And Recording audio only. And Let Me say it again. No other major DAW. Has this problem!!!!!

    Again! No other Major DAW brand has this problem with MIDI delay. They have all addressed the problem. Ableton has Not! Thus It is a Major Flaw in your Product(s)  If you want your Product to be a DAW and not just a Performance tool. You need to fix this. And You do know the problem exists, but offer no way of addressing it. You offer no adjustment to any part of Live to compensate for the midi delay. So You apparently . Do not have a Fix!!!!

    Personally. I think it is related to your WARP process. And the fact. That We can not Turn it off completely. (There is no determinable reason for this.)

    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?
