I’m frustrated

Has anyone ever had a problem with the Alesis V25 of a delay in sound, when hitting keys or pads, new out of box?

I just received my Alesis V25 and I am getting sounds from both keys and pads. But all of the sounds have about a 1/2 second delay from hitting the key or pad, to when you hear the sound. I'm desperate! Please can anyone help???

  • Hi Doug,

    Thanks for the post. 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!
