Recording in Live leaves a little timelag consistently.


I am having a problem with Live, that I cannot get my head around. Every time I record something, internally or exteranally, there always seems to be a litte delay on the recording. Even if draw a Midi clip with nodes and record internally to a different audio track, there always seem to be a little time delay, so the beat hits about a 1/32th note after around 120 BPM.

I have tried different Soundcards and different buffer settings, and nothing changes this. 

Does any one else have the same problems?

    well, it's latency. You use record quantise to overcome it usually, or track delay. You should be able to get it down to a pretty small amount. Also look up direct monitoring as that might help.
