I'm *pretty sure* REAPER records what is played, not what is heard. So, you might end up with notes appearing as through they've been recorded "early". Really, Reaper is recording what you've been playing, but you have been subconsciously compensating for the latency your hearing. Thus, you are playing a little early.

Ableton records what is "heard". Thus, if you're not expecting it, sometimes your notes would appear as recorded "late".
Ah it would be great to find that post, always keen on
reading this stuff. Also I updated the previous post with
important info about recording device and settings.
