conquest
anyone know much about interfaces?
Kimryd
maybe conquest
what do you need to know
conquest
I have an mbox 2 right now and I get latency issues even with latest drivers and asio
so I'm looking to just get a new interface
Kimryd
What kind of latency issues conquest
conquest
if I plug in my guitar or microphone I get a small delay
Kimryd
hAVE YOU TRIED REDUCING BUFFER SIZE
caps
conquest
yes
I tried all that stuff in the preferences
nothing works
Kimryd
o
okay
This isn't a problem with your interface
It's a problem with Ableton Live
conquest
so even if I get a new interface I will still have this issue?
Kimryd
Yes
Aren't you glad you asked?
If Ableton Live's audio track is set to monitor when recording there will be a delay in recordin
conquest
No one I know has the same problem though
Kimryd
there's nothing you can do about this
Read above line
conquest
so is there any solution to this?
Kimryd
No
Well
yes
Once you record you simply change the clips start time to be that of the first audio event
but how to prevent it?
no way
conquest
do other DAWs have this problem?
Kimryd
No
I personally have recently abandoned ableton live for good myself conquest
conquest
what did you switch to?
Kimryd
Bitwig Studio
conquest
never heard of it
Kimryd
It is brand spanking new
Most recent stable is 1.1.11
Not 9.2 like Live
conquest
is it free?
Kimryd
No
I paid 370$ for it

conquest
Do you know any free programs where I can monitor my mic/guitar to see if I still get delay?
Kimryd
Reaper
conquest
when I'm in preferences and click "hardware setup" any changes to buffer size or clock source doesn't apply after pressing "ok"
I go back and it still at 512 internal
this is using the ASIO driver
Kimryd
uh
conquest
if I switch to ASIO4ALL v2 I don't get any sound at all
Kimryd
well to fix the latter problem
click on the asio control panel, hardware setup button or in the taskbar icon section thingy
And turn on the outputs for your interface
For the buffer size, are you able to adjust it from within live?
conquest
when using ASIO driver for mbox I can't change anything but Driver Error Compensation
Kimryd
Then I do not know
All I could say is try restarting live or the computer
conquest
this is an issue i've had for 2-3 years
Kimryd
ah I see
conquest
on other computers I don't see this issue
Kimryd
o?
Weird
conquest
well not with my setup
no one I know has the problem with recording on here
so it either has to do with my drivers/computer/ or interface
Kimryd
I see
Well an interface I could recom-
How many in/outs u need?
conquest
1 guitar, 1 mic, 2 reference monitors, 1 headphone, and i use usb for my Midi Keyboard unless you recommend using midi
Kimryd
No, I don't, USB is fine
Guitar, electric or acoustic
iunno
whatever
conquest
electric plugged in but I use a mic to record acoustic
Kimryd
I see
Okay well, I would recommend the one I have most experience with, that being the presonus audiobox 22vsl
https://www.presonus.com/products/AudioBox-22VSL
2 mic/instrument level inputs
separate headphone out
powered via usb
2 outs
The preamps are tasty
same you find in their much more expensive mixing desks
conquest
would this be better than the scarlett 2i4?
Kimryd
Well this doesn't have 4 outs
But
It does have a virtual mixer
which may or may not be useful to you
You can put gate, compressor, limiter, eq, filter before the DAW
conquest
with software or on the device?
Kimryd
Software

conquest
so I tested my mbox 2 on my old macbook pro and there was 0 delay/latency issues using coreaudio but on my PC with Windows 7 I still get noticeable delay with Asio
