Default Best way to compensate for REC input latency?

What is the best way to compensate for REC input latency/offset? Every A/D and or audio interface software creates a small REC offset.
Most DAW's have a place to enter in a sample/ms offset amount. How do I deal with this with PT9?

I have not heard about rec input offset.
Are you not talking about input monitoring latency ?

No, input offset. (time aligning i/o).
If you record a loopback of an output back into an input & zoom into see how far off the wavform/offset is from the source, this is your "input latency offset".
Everything you track/rec is off by this amount. Most DAW's have a manual offset. Can't seem to figure out a way to do this in PT.

Ok.

Im not completly shure it's what your looking for, but there is something about Hardware Insert Delay Offset on page 962 in the Pro Tools Reference guide.

Setup-> I/O -> H/W Insert Delay

More info might help here(like what interface and what buffer setting you run at while recording). Small amounts of offset, like 1.2ms(the average time for conversion between analog to digital and back) are no more serious than the physical distance between 2 players in a large recording space. Are you having a problem?
