Default HELP: Audio Monitoring delay!

I'm a new user and trying to record first time. Problem is, I've set the track to monitor the recording track, which it is doing, but about an 8th of a second after I play it!

I'm using a MOTU 828 mk2 for all audio, if this makes any difference. I assume this is a latency issue?

Are you using ASIO first of all?

If so, what is the latency set to?

Default HELP: Audio Monitoring delay!

I am now! Thanks for the reply. Has sped up to just a fraction of a second after now, as if I've just got a bit of splashback delay on. Can I get it to be virtually instantaneous? Media buffer size is 1200. Can't find a setting for 'latency'...

Or look for the driver utility in the Window control panel.

thanks, already looked at that. How do you adjust the latency - is it by adjustment of the buffer size?

Exactly. But watch out - if you set your latency too low for your hardware (depends on how good configuration of your PC is), you'll hear crackles and pops in the sound. If you do, try setting a bit larger buffer size, until the problems are gone.
It also depends a little bit on the quality of your audio interface, but that's another matter.
