PHIL PHIL PHIL I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. OH MY GOD. IT JUST FIXED SO MANY PROBLEMS, THE SOUND WAS ONLY COMING OUT IN MONO, ETC. AAHHHHH I LOVE YOU. So you'd recommend 24bit at 44k?
Having had a second look, I noticed you're using a M-Audio Fast Track Pro, AND (more significantly) that the Driver Type you're currently using is MME / DirectX. Change that to ASIO and you'll see a BIG improvement in performance! After you try that, we can discuss the relative advantages and disadvantages to recording at 96kHz... personally I don't think it's really necessary for most projects, and it does place considerable additional demands on the computer's processor and requires more HDD storage space and throughput speed than recording at 24 bit / 44.1 kHz does.

Phil thanks for all the info and knowledge(i feel like i should be paying you haha). Thanks so much. I'll keep this thread bookmarked so i can refer back at any time. At the new asio settings the latency is 5ms. Which is way better the 12.7
PS Do make sure you experiment with the buffer sizes - even under ASIO, you will want to increase them when mixing (for maximum CPU horsepower for effects, etc.) and use the smallest one you can run and still remain stable and glitch-free when tracking for the lowest possible latency. If your computer is reasonably modern and has a decent HDD (and you're running a session without a bunch of extra virtual instruments and plugins enabled), I would expect it to run 128 buffers without a hitch.

Yes, the loops are timed perfectly now. So basically i'm just learning how to EQ my tracks. I think i've got the mic in the brightest position so now i'm going to EQ it the best i can.
At the new asio settings the latency is 5ms. Which is way better the 12.7 That's more like it, huh? Let us know if / when you have more questions. We're here to help. :wave:
