Default MBox 2 Mini Mix Latency

Hi All,

I wonder if you can help. My understanding of the Mix button on my Mbox2 Mini is that you can mix the pre and post DAW/effects signals. Useful for vocals etc. If this is what it is for then I assume that when the Mix dial is in the middle I should be able to hear 50/50 with no latency. On my setup I get about 500MS delay. Its always been like this no matter how my Preferences/setting are. Can someone shed some light on why this may be please?

I am using Ableton 6.0.9, with Toshiba M5 and S1 PC's, MBox2 mini, windows XP, Korg EMX.

Thanks for any help!

Hi Shan,

Let me get this straight.. If I am using "no" effects.. just running the MBox with Ableton, I arm a channel and send a signal through, should I get latency? Just through Ableton? Or is this something only plugins cause? (I do btw..).

Thanks mate.

Just for more info, I have turned on the track record button in Ableton and muted the channel, then played with the mix knob, but I still get a bit of latency without using any effects. Its not as bad as when I add a delay and reverb but still a delay. I guess this is from doing the analogue to digital conversion of my voice.. yeah?

Oh, and I still don't get why we have to mute the audio channel? What is the reason for this?

Such a nube sorry..

ok, Im reading you previous posts properly this time... Here what I am doing, please please tell me where I am going wrong..

In Ableton, I arm an audio track, the input obviously my mic (channel 1 on the mbox). I then Mute the track as you advise (I did this by pressing the yellow square button under the Pan knob, it goes grey | I also tried, turning the Monitor selection to OFF, but this seemed to do the same thing). Then I can hear only the unprocessed vocal. I then turn the Mix knob to the right and I cant hear any of my processed voice, it mutes out. This makes sense as I just muted the channel I suppose.

I want to hear my effected/post signal mixed with my dry vocal but with no latency. Doing the above does not help me acheive this.

I dont mean to point out the obvious by the above, I just want to be clear in what is happening on my side, I know your point will be valid once I understand, but right now I dont understand... heyalp?
