I'm using the audiobox 1818vsl into studio one 2 artist. I have an intel core I7 processor. When I try to record using the guitar plugins in the DAW I'm getting a ton of latency making it impossible to track with. I know I'm going from analog input to a digital playback and that's what is causing the delay. I've tried everything from muting the track I'm recording, to setting up a zero latency cue mix. Whenever I do this I'm getting the raw guitar sound through my headphones. Is there a way to hear the plugins while I record with zero latency?

1)Reduce bufer size of audio interface.

2) Use 192Khz sample rate.


All of this two solution will smoke your CPU. laugh


Do you connect your audio interface atlist to USB 2 or higher?

What guitar plugings you use for your guitar? Maybe it coses latency?


If you use Mac try to use Audio Units plugin format. Becus it is build in to OS it have to be very low latency.
