Hope someone out there can help. I just purchased a Yamaha MG10 mixer for my son Danny, the idea being to hook up the keyboard and guitar so he can record some songs he has written. We plugged it all in and it works, the only thing is there is a slight delay between playing a note and it hitting the screen.

We have a program called Reaper and also we tried it in Audacity but try what may we cannot get rid of the delay.

Would appreciate any ideas at all, as we have totally run out of things to try.

What operating system and what have you tried?

There is a Yamaha driver that I guess might help with latency on Windows.

You will always get a delay with a digital processor and display. It's not vitually instantaneous like an analogue input to a 'scope.
If you don't watch, it won't bother you. It's just a recording.
If you're overdubbing, ie recording a second track while listening to the first, there is a facility in Audacity to introduce a delay so that your new part syncs with the original; at preferences>recording>.
Windows (built in)synths have a terrible delay, if you're inputting through a keyboard you seem to wait forever for the note to sound.
Anyway, I hope you can get it sorted.

I can fully understand the (more than annoying) disconnect between key input and delay...even a micro-second.

I played (over a couple years, on occasion) a giant pipe-organ in a stone mausolium. The bass pipes were in the two distant "arms of the cross" architecture, perhaps, 200 feet away. It took extreme concentration, and rigid timing to keep the keyboard and foot-pedals connected.

The same holds true for a carrillon, the delay between fist pounding "the key" and a distant bell ringing and returning to the ear requires some serious adjustment compared to a piano, etc.

I am quite surprised with your current issue.

I assume, this is happening with ear-phones, and is more than the 60 cycle electrical.

Sincerley,
Gargoyle

the delay of 1/60th would be awkward...however, the ability to align tracks is in an after production issue that is quickly resolved. Audascity is pretty awsome...but I still the old "Cakewalk."

The guest posts were me just had to log in again. Thanks for the replies, we have Audacity and I still have Cakewalk which I love.

I'll get Danny to try with them.
