"delay" while recording

hi there, i am wondering why when i go to record, in my headphones as well as outside speakers, there is a delay in the recording. i strum, then 1 second later it strums in my headphones…does anyone know why???
thanks, first time recorder

Probably because you have “software playthrough” enabled.
if you provide more information about your set-up we can probably help further.

I have exactly the same problem…!!
I use a tascam 122L card for recording…
So when i record more than 1 channels, (2-5) i have problem. My second or other channel records are out of time…
Can u help me?

Have you set up the latency correction? http://manual.audacityteam.org/index.php?title=Latency_Test
