Forum Information

Dear users, I have decided to phase out the posting on the forums on this website and move any discussions over to this private facebook group. While the forums were great 10 years ago, they are now difficult to maintain due to constant spam. I spend most of my time just cleaning them up, rather than interacting. This, combined with finding it difficult to directly communicate with other users through several different social media platforms, I have decided to consolodate it all to one group where people can chat with me, ask questions and jibber jabber with other users on a regular basis. I will not make the forums offline as there is a wealth of content, but posting has now been disabled. Thanks to all those who have contributed over the years, and I'll see you over on the Facebook group! -Tom

I have a good deal of latency when plugging my guitar into my scarlet 2i2, any tips for lowering it?

Hi JaMon

I have the scarlet. Here is what I do
- download the latest driver on Focusrirte website
- install it
- launch live and select the asio driver
- I am able to set the buffer down to 3 msec in the hardware config
- Of course this makes a roundtrip latency of 21,3 msec, which is almost unplayable
- If I add CPU intensive devices in my ableton session, then I have to raise the buffer again
...
- Finally I bought a mixer and forgot about having my guitar processed through ableton
- In my opinion it works only when you play some chill-out
- and maybe if you have a RME babyface, but I still want to try it to believe it ;)

Hi Jamon, how much latency are you experiencing? What is your buffer size currently set at?

I have a Focusrite Saffire 2in4out and i can go as low as 64 or up to 256 buffer size without experience any latency on my guitar signal. I'm pretty sure latency above 15mili seconds is when you experience a delay in your signal.
