Latency in recorded audio from plugin (Kontakt)

2 similar scenarios - one induces latency, the other does not.  But I don't understand why.  Seems independent of whether delay compensation or reduced latency while monitoring settings are activated.  Perhaps someone can advise:

Scenario 1:

Track 1: Kontakt 5 Piano playing midi clip, utility setting to mono

Audio Track 2: Record-enabled and Monitoring Track 1 (IN), utility setting to mono and invert phase

  Result: Full Cancellation - means no latency - GOOD!

 

Scenario 2:

Track 1: Kontakt 5 Piano playing midi clip, utility setting to mono [Same as before]

Track 2: Recorded 1 bar from track 1, now playing it back, with same utility plugin setting to mono and inverting phase.

  Result: Only partial cancellation - depending on track 1's latency (which is unknown to me), there could be up to 10 ms of latency, based on the location of transients in the recorded clip in Track 2. - BAD

Any suggestions / explanations?  Is there any way to get the sounds I'm monitoring and recording to match exactly?  

Thanks!

 

 

BTW- using Live 9.2
