Latency

Continuation of my prior post " Band Demo"…
I’m experiencing latency. As the vocal tracks keep increasing I’m guessing the computer is working hard to compensate.
Should I mute the vocal tracks that aren’t being used at that time while continuing to record new tracks along the timeline?
Will the latency return to normal if most tracks are muted?
If the vocals are coming in a bit late and I’m using the default buffer and correction settings, which should I change and to what number value?
thx

Recording latency? You play or sing in perfect time to the reference track but the recording plays back later out of time?

If the vocals are coming in a bit late and I’m using the default buffer and correction settings, which should I change and to what number value?

The default settings are only a wild guess. You generally have to set recording latency for each computer. We posted different ways to do this.

I’ve never used a computer that changed latency as I went. My guess is you’ll never get there because if you’re that close to the edge, the beginning and ends of the song may be different.
