Lexicon Lambda & Sonar 7 Latency

Hi,

I'm still quite new to digital recording and I seem to have hit a bit of a wall that apparently troubles mostly everyone at some point or another. I have tried to record just two tracks but I cannot do this without some very distinct latency. I'm using a Lexicon Lambda that goes straight to my computer (Dell Precision M65). My computer has 2 GB of RAM and a Core Duo Processor. I'm also using SONAR 7 PE. I have tried everything I have read in these forums and elsewhere...

I have tried the WMD, MME, ASIO drivers. ASIO is the only that allows me to record.
I have adjusted the bit rate and bit depth and have made sure that they match on the soundcard and in Sonar
I have reinstalled Sonar
I have added the patches
My computer is on a docking station I have plugged it into that as well

I would really appreciate some help, thanks a lot.

- Tom

    To adjust latency while using ASIO drivers, you must raise/lower the buffers in your sound card.

    I'm not at SONAR right now, but I think if you go to Options/Audio (?) you should be able to open the ASIO control panel for your Lexicon driver - you will be able to change your latency settings in there.

    The Lexicon control panel only allows changing CPU usage, sample rate, and bit depth, no of which have made the latency any less noticeable. Any idea how to change the buffers? Thanks

    According to the Lambda's .pdf manual, in the control panel where you set the sample rate and bit depth, there's a slider labeled "Lambda Stream Reliability". Moving the slider to the left (More CPU) lowers the buffers and moving it to the right (Less CPU) raises the buffers.

    Hum, what are your buff/latency settings and what are your recording and playback I/O buffers set to?? What driver mode? and what is the size of your project?? include soft synths and plugs. You may just need to ajust the latency or it could be an IRQ conflict or it could be clipping.
