Latency and EDIROL PC-50

I use Musicator for writing music, and have this Edirol pc-50 plugged into my pc by means of an USB-plug. But I am tired of this latency which disturbs me when writing. The latency is about one second.

I am using XP and the pc is rather fresh, strong/rapid and new.

Kind regards,

Re: Latency and EDIROL PC-50

The main cause of latency is your hardware. What kind of soundcard do you have? If you are using the one that came with your computer then that is your problem, no matter how good or new your PC is, manufacturers like to save costs by using cheap motherboard mounted soundcards, I had exactly the same problem as you when I started using a MIDI keyboard with cubase.

I'd suggest buying a soundcard designed for audio applications, I use the M-Audio Fasttrack which you can pick up very cheaply nowadays. I have my latency down to around 1/20 second and as an added bonus I get a 1/4 input and an XLR input as well for recording.

Im useing cakewalk music creater 4 on my laptop windows 7 - and im expeirencing soome deley in the audio recording

Be sure your computer is in either high-performance or low-latency power mode. Windows 7 likes to put computers in a power-saving mode that is great when running on battery but really works against you when working with high-demand software. There should be a battery/power icon on your task bar. Just double click this and change your power option to low-latency (preferred) or high-performance.

If this doesn't fully resolve the issue, follow my tip on speeding up your computer:

Me and some buddies record with sonar home studio 6 and i bought a new pc custom built for recording well our computers on tha same day and time started having problems with sonar popping and glitching...

Sounds like what is called a latency problem. You need to go into the settings in Sonar and under audio, adjust the Latency to a higher number...I don't know sonar home studio, or I would tell you the exact area to go in the menu's to adjust latency..Hope this helps!
