Any overdubbing latency issues with Multimix 4 USB and Reaper?

I'm thinking of buying a Multimix 4 USB to use as an audio interface with Reaper on Windows 10. It will be used to record and overdub guitar/mic/keyboards. I want to be able to monitor my playing in real time alongside the backing track from Reaper, using phones connected to the Multimix. Can anyone tell me if this will cause any latency issues?

  • Hi Ian,

    Thanks for posting. 

    First, it's important to understand that latency is not something that exists within the product itself, but something that can be caused by your computer system and its configuration. To ensure that your computer is running at peak efficiency, I would first confirm that your computer is exceeding the minimum system specs that are required for your DAW (Reaper, in this case). Additionally, it's important that your computer is properly optimized for recording. If your computer is brand new, this is likely a process that you will need to go through prior to beginning your recording. I've included a great guide below that will walk you through exactly how to do this if you are not already familiar:

    I hope this helps!

  • Thanks for your reply. Yes I can confirm that my system meets the basic requirements (it's a 2nd gen Intel i5 CPU with SSD and 16GB RAM), and have confirmed that there is no latency when using a borrowed Zoom R8 as a USB audio interface. But I also borrowed a Behringer UCA202 and got unacceptable latency from that, so it seems that not all USB audio interfaces are created equal - hence my original enquiry.
