Default Latency with Mix Pre6 as audio interface

Hi all
Could anyone share their knowledge of setting up Mix Pre6ii as an audio interface,, please?. When recording audio and monitoring with headphones (HP set to USB1,2, on the mixpre) I have major latency issues.

Monitoring using headphones set to LR stereo I have no latency issues but unable to hear USB1,2 - which monitors the two output channels from my DAW.

Ive looked at CPU and plugins and changed the bufferring - no luck
48/24 session with video on 11.3

Really eagre to use this :

Not familiar with the Mix Pre6, but I see a feature listed as USB Output Delay. What does that do?

Otherwise, reducing the buffer size is the only way to reduce the delay if there is no provided “low latency” path. A buffer of 64 or 128 should do the trick.

Not sure if this matters, but PT11 on Windows 10 is an unsupported combination

As said, the Playback Buffer needs to be set low(like 64 or 128) for acceptable latency. Beyond that, look at plugin latency and keep those numbers low while recording. I never had an issue with total plugin latency below 64 samples, but I tried to keep it down to 10-11 samples(11 samples was the Console 1 plugin).
