Try a different ASIO driver. I would say that the sound card that you are using does not come with an ASIO driver so the software can't use the card correctly. I recommend ASIO4ALL. It is free to download and works with almost all soundcards and audio devices in Windows. You can get it from

Best of luck.

    You may need to play around with the ASIO buffer size, Latency compensation and Hardware Buffer settings as well as AC97 Troubleshooting settings.
    In the WDM Device list, make sure your sound card is selected and note the settings for In and Out and if they are green or red.
    For ASIO Buffer Size, SMALLER is better. Start with 128 Samples and go up or down and see what give you best sound and least latency. If your card or system can't handle higher settings and you try to set the latency in the recording software too low, it will distort and clip and sound REALLY bad.
    Latency compensation should be around 32 Samples for in and out to start. Turn off the Hardware Buffer because I am sure your sound card does not have integrated memory.

    That sound card is just not really good enough for recording. The integrated onboard sound (HD audio CODEC) is not made for recording and it is really only meant to do, 5.1 6.1 or 7.1 audio decoding for higher quality playback or media files and DVD. It is not meant to be used as a recording interface.

    There are add-on cards and USB interfaces made specifically for that, that work much better and depending on what you are recording can be VERY inexpensive. For guitar and bass or other live audio there is a 1/4" to USB cable called Light Snake that works with very well with most recording software and it is 25 or 30 USD. If you are doing MIDI, you can get a Turtle Beach or M-Audio MIDI to USB cables that will let you control software instruments for about the same cost. Microphones can be used with the light snake or they make cables for that too.

    You can get decent PCI or USB and interfaces that are made for small studios and home recording, like the E-MU 1616, 1212 or 0404 or an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 for a reasonable price at Guitar Centre or Fry's if you have one near or you or on their websites. A used one can be had on Craigslist or EBay as well. They range from less than 75 dollars to well over 300 dollars. They actually have proper inputs, and have multiple input and output jacks and MIDI in and out as well. There is also the Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS PCI cards that record 24/96 and handle the ASIO stuff really well and since they are older they are fairly cheap. Just make sure you get one that supports 24 bit recording. The main setback with them is the input is mini stereo in, the same as what you have, so you will need adapters for 1/8" mini male to 1/4" female or the optional interface that has the 1/4" jacks and MIDI ports. I used one for a long time till I got my Pro Tools hardware. I still use it for playback and for the synth chip that is on it. There are a lot of other cards that would be better for what you are trying to do.

    Hope this helps answer some of the questions, and gives you some information on other options open to you.

    Best of luck.

When I record with my m-audio mobile pre USB, there is no latency issues with recording but there is a delay in the headphones if I turn them up to hear myself while recording. How do I fix this? I'm using...

Have a read at this article. I assume you are using ASIO4ALL if not then you should.

Specifically this part:

Note about latency: USB microphones generally only allow you to hear the sound being recorded after it has passed through FL Studio. As the latency of USB microphones depends on the ASIO4ALL latency settings, there may be a troublesome delay between the sound made and it being reproduced from your speakers or headphones. For example, low latency monitoring is particularly important to vocalists as high latencies cause a distracting echo effect. The only solution to this problem is to lower your buffer length settings (there are limits) or obtain a new soundcard with direct-monitoring.

Lexicon Omega/Cubasele4

I've had this problem and similar ones. Following these steps seems to help:

Starting Cubase before switching on the Omega.

Go to 'Devices' and then 'Device Set-up'. Make sure you're in the 'VST Audio System' part of the menu. Make sure the Omega is selected as the ASIO driver - if not, switch it. Then click on 'Set to Defaults', then 'Apply' and 'OK'.

Or re-setting the Omega sometimes helps too.

It's a pain, though.

Distorted, horrible sound with IO|2 and guitar

I'm new at it too, but if you increase the buffer to around 256 or higher than you have it anyway, you might get rid of the distortion. Look in the ASIO control panel
