Input lag with my Alesis Q49 and Ignite

Hey, i'm using the software Ignite with an Alesis Q49. The problem is that i have a massive input lag. Every time I hit a piano key the tone comes 1-2 seconds later... I hope someone can help me.
thank you in advance.

  • Hi Anders,

    Thanks for posting.

    Every recording program has an options, settings or preferences page where the user can adjust the buffer size. Buffer size governs the amount of time the computer is given to respond to requests (for audio processing in this case). The larger the buffer size, the more time the computer has to respond. Large buffer sizes allow the computer to handle more work without choking. This prevents pops, clicks, chattering and skipping caused by an overloaded processor, but at the cost of higher latency. Smaller buffer sizes reduce the overall amount of work the computer can handle, but it can do so with lower latency. Latency refers to the time it takes the computer to respond to input. If latency is high, signals routed into the computer and back out to speakers or headphones may be audibly delayed.

    Refer to this helpful article here regarding how to optimizing your system, improve performance, and manage latency. I hope this helps!
