Unwanted echo/delay on MIDI and instruments

    So I have seen a plethora of similar issues discussed here but none I could find specific to this problem. Every bit of audio played in ableton echoes. If I play a MIDI instrument, record with a live instrument, and even the test tone and click track echo. I have checked my settings time and time again and see nothing out of place. I'm not sure if anyone would be able to tell me how to fix this, but if you can I really appreciate it.

    It sounds like your soundcard might be routed up so you're able to record the output of everything, and you have the output from that channel unmuted (thus you're hearing the delayed output from the latency of the card).

    Look at the way your soundcard is set up in general (as in not specifically Ableton but in the OS itself), check the inputs and outputs in whatever mixer application you use, and check that everything that should be muted has been muted !
