How can I eliminate latency or delay between when I play a key and when I hear a sound?

Product Information > Notation (Music Printing)

If you use a notation program such as Sibelius, Finale, Print Music or MusicTime, you’ve probably experienced the frustration of latency.

Latency is the delay between when you strike a key on a MIDI keyboard and when your computer creates the sound. This can make it impossible to properly record and line notes up and is very frustrating!

Even if you don’t use a notation program, but work with software synths, VSTi’s or virtual instruments such as those from EastWest, Steinberg, IK Multimedia, AAS or any others, you know how big a problem latency can be! If you want to use a software synth live, or even if you want to record and have your tracks line up, you can’t be worrying about latency.

Fortunately, there are two easy solutions, and we now have a video that explains what latency is, why it happens and how to fix it!
