Exclamation Pro Tools 9 Delay and Delay Compensation on Aux Tracks and Bussing

Hello DUC

So I'm using a template for sound design. The FX (vocal in this instance) track is being output to an AUX 3-4 (bus3-4) and AUX (bus3-4) is being output to AUX 1-2 (bus1-2). AUX 1-2 (bus1-2) is being output to Analog 1-2 (my MBOX2 Mini and 2.1 Monitor system.

The FX Track is using an AUX send. The AUX Send is output to SEND 9-10 (bus 9-10). SEND 9-10 (bus9-10) is being output to AUX 1-2 (bus-1-2).

My current project is delivering processed voices and I'm encountering approximately a 256 sample delay between the Send tracks and the FX track.
Delay Compensation is on and I have trouble shot with it off.

Can someone please explain to me why this is happening? I understand that a delay is 8 samples for an Aux but isn't PT Delay Compensation supposed to fix that?

How can I use my template and run sample accurate productions?

Where is all this delay coming from?
It is creating an unintentional echo (as you would guess).
*Note there are no plugins at all on any of these tracks.

Interesting....I am kind of just signing on to this so i can hear the answer.....

But since i am here....you must have a good reason to be pushing the tracks thru all the aux's right? I mean if you don't have any plugins you must be using some external hardware right?

If i run voice i will run sends off the audio channel to 3 aux's for vocal processing and then run those aux's and the Audio track (vocal in this case) all to output to a stem (aux input) and then that stem dumps it to my main monitor outs......

But what you are sayin is that your seeing delay that is not being compensated for on the waveform? (and your right we shouldn't)
