    This is called latency, shrink the input buffer size in the Ableton preferences till the latency is gone. If your computer just isnt fast enough you wont be able to shrink it enough before the recorded audio starts glitching/sounding screwed up, if thats the case youll just have to drag the audio back a little after recording. You can do this very precise by turning off the grid (ctrl/command+4) and then dragging it till its exactly in time.
