Well I finally got back to using my old cakewalk 2002 and.......
Now I find that when I load in an audio track and then try to record to a new audio track alongside it.... there appears to be about a half second or better delay (real time) between what I have loaded and am playing back and the track I am trying to (Sing) record to.... This I hear in the speakers.....

Using an HP Laptop 2003 vintage..Windows XP... plus an EDIROL UA-1X USB interface and a little Berringer 4 channel mixer for the mic .

CakeWalk options specified in the audio section...
playback wave device: Total Recorder (software)

Record Wave device: USB audio codec (Edirol Interface)

Aux buses: 2

virtual mains 3

audio driver bit depth 16

sampling rate 4800 file bit depth 16

playback queue 16

buffer size set to fast -------------------- 10 ms

effective latency at 48khz/stereo 150/ms

I want to record (My Voice) real time alongside the existing music audio track. Several years ago I was able to do this with this same equipment and sucessfully recorded a 2 CD album and everything was in sync.

Can anyone suggest what I am doing wrong and offer a solution.

Hey Well... I noticed now that that echo or delay from mic input to speaker output exists even when I am not actively recording..... also noted that I don't think the delay that I hear in the speakers is actually on the recording when I do it...... I think maybe using earphones instead of the speakers will solve my problem.... but still want to hear any ideas regarding this......

Nope !still there...
Changed audio option to playback with the sound chip in the laptop and that reduced the echo delay significantly... Almost not there. :? :idea: :idea: :idea:
