I am a new user and I am probably missing something easy but after I activate an audio track and have my guitar tone ready to record, I click the enable record icon and delay and echo effects are added to my guitar tone when I begin recording. I have tried everything I can think of to remove these effects but no luck. Your help will be appreciated. Thanks.

This is most often related to buffer size. The delay is cause by latency, which is the time it takes the pc to process the information. A smaller buffer means less latency, but more work for the computer. The computer needs to be up to the task with enough processor and ram.


Buffer is adjusted in the driver program for the interface you are using. For example, Presonus firewire devices ahve Universal Control as the driver application, and any buffer adjustments would happen there.
