    So, you have latency. 103 milliseconds to be exact. Welcome to music making with a DAW and the downside to the digital world.

    As a keyboard player, I need to get the Latency below 10ms for it not to mess me up. The main contributor is your D/A converter or interface and the latency to buffer size ratio directly relates to how good your converter is.

    So, drop down the buffer size till the latency is livable, and see if your computer can keep up. If not, it's time to invest in better hardware.
