This delay is called latency, and is caused by your computer and/or recording software. There are two ways to reduce or eliminate latency:
Decrease the I/O Buffer Size in your Audio Application
See "How do I set my software's I/O buffer?" for more information.
Use the Low Latency Mixer provided by your Apogee Interface
- Using the low latency mixer found in the Apogee Maestro 2 application may help. Click on the mixer tab to configure it to your desired settings. Be sure to set your desired output to "mixer" on the output page.
