Latency Using Midi Keyboard

Hi, I recently upgraded to S1 pro, upgraded the PC and also purchased Scarlett Solo 2nd Gen. Since this the latency figures look extreme, and sound it too, when I play a note through the MIDI keyboard I hear it 1/2 sec later.

I'm using a bespoke built PC. Windows 10 Home, Intel i7 processor, ASUS Z170 ******, 32Gb RAM and this is running on an SSD.

Under S1 Audio Setup The Input Latency shows 240ms and the output 320ms. This is with a default of 3840 samples device and internal, 16 bit, 48Khz.
If I unlock the block size and change internal block size to 32 samples, the latency figures dont change much.

When I use the keyboard I can see the midi light up immediately next to the relevant track, but the delay is between this and the audio channel strip lighting up.

I'm sure there's a simple explanation to this however, I've not been able to find it as of yet, and tried for a few days now.

Any pointers please, or other signs to check for an indication of where my trouble is?

Thanks, Rob.

... this was down to the Focusrite USB driver not being properly installed. Thanks.
