Weird effect on vocals while recording, goes away when played back?

When I'm monitoring myself in my headphones I have weird doubled / stereo effect on my vocals, when I play back the effect is not present, which leads me to believe this is a settings issue. Anyone have a quick fix? Thanks!

    it looks like you hear both direct input and the one in ableton live itself.

    Depending on your latency settings , you hear a doubled voice.

    Just mute the track in ableton live while recording if you want to keep your voice feedback to headphones without any latency.

    Exactly what you have been told. This is a latency problem with your hardware (Soundcard) .

    In order to try to solve this in the future, please try to reduce the buffer samples in your hardware configuration. Doing this, your computer will increase the process so, you could find some glitch sound processing, noise or cut sound. Try to discover for yourself whats the best choice that suites good for your hardware configuration.

    As soon as you reduce the Latency time, your voice will reduce the timming (stereo effect) considerably.

    A nice Latency time, is up to 5 to 10ms.  But you need a good hardware procesor.
