Is this a wireless keyboard? if it is that means your sensor that is connected to your computer is not close enough to recieve the signal, if this is not the case your settings for your keyboard could need changing. To do this go Start - Control Panel - Printers and Other Hardware - Keyboard - (first tab will say speed) the marker should be at the third line. This is how fast the computer repeats the character to you when you type. If you want it faster you can set it all the way. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    The keyboard is super sensitive making it impossible to type without many many errors. Is there any way to harden the keyboard?

    In your control panel, you should be able to access keyboard settings and adjust the repeat delay rate for keystrokes as well as the delay before the repeat starts.

    How do I get my Gear Head Wireless Keyboard shut down.

    It has no off function. It uses little to no power when in stand-by (Not in use). It even has an auto off function after a delay. Just replace the batteries when they run out.

    Delay problem

    Not sure how you are defining delay. Are you recording to the hard drive using the sound card as inputs? Are you listening to the speakers while you are recording or are you playing a recording back and there is delay or echo in that? PLease let me know

    Delay on keyboard when using with cubase and reason

    this is because of the lantency of your sound card and your driver settings.

    with 2 seconds,
    that sounds like you're using a MME driver for your card.

    try to change the driver to ASIO (if possible),
    if not, change it to directX

    you can do that that way:

    - Open up Devices > Device Setup > VST Multitrack

    - Drop-down the ASIO Driver settings on the right side of the screen
