Delay and echoes when recording

Learn about causes and fixes for this problem.


Audible input monitoring usually causes a delay (latency) of the live recording input due to the time it takes to reach your headphones.


To prevent this, turn input monitoring off. This can be done by choosing Transport > Transport Options > Enable audible input monitoring and clicking it to remove the check (tick) mark.

To listen to the live recording input without playthrough latency requires hardware monitoring - that is; the input signal must be routed directly through the audio device from the input to the output rather than being passed through software from input to output.
