  • delay between drums and Toontrack EZdrummer

    Im having a problem now that ive got ezdrummer to work there is a major delay between when i hit my pintech drums and when i hear it from my in ezdrummer in Sonar Cakewalk....and if u play real fast it doesnt even pick up the notes because its so delayed....its some kind of latency issue

    does anyone know how to fix this problem...thanks

    What kind of PC interface do you use?
    Probably it does not support ASIO standard which is a key for low latency. Check the settings of the buffer size (somewhere in your card setup).
    You can also measure the latency using this software: http://centrance.com/products/ltu/

    And last but not least - use www.asio4all.com - universal ASIO drivers for any PC-interface. It should help a little bit.

      im actually using my built in soundcard in my hp laptop could that be whats causing it..its an Conexant (Conexant AC-Link Audio).....

      I have an external usb sound blaster live card should i use it instead?

        The SB card probably won't be much better. See what results you get using the ASIO4ALL drivers, otherwise you'll need a proper pro-audio designed sound card, either USB, Firewire or PCMCIA which offers low latency drivers, like those made by M-Audio, Echo or RME to name but a few.

          try using ASIO4ALL but also adjust your buffers for audio in Sonar. It's under the General Prefs or something like that (I dont have sonar in front of me to look right now but...)

          I had a small delay like this and thought it was the MIDI latency but after adjusting the buffers for MIDI I found it didnt cause any change. Lowering my audio buffers did the trick.

          I was using an m-audio 2496 PCI
