What's the best way to decrease latency on the output of my Alesis Photon x25 onto FL Studio 7 running Windows Vista? (Does anybody out there know what I'm talking about?)

It may be your computer spec not provided in the question description :(

Latency would point to your machine not being able to process the inputs fast enough. I would look into a processor/memory upgrade to your rig.

Alternatively, and for less cash, your other option is to do your best to close memory/cpu intensive processes while you run FL. You can do this through the task manager.

Even at dual core, the 1.6 Ghz processor worries me. You processor is under the socket 775 type. I would recommend looking into an upgrade there. Vista also BEGS to have more than 1 gig of RAM. With all of the bloat in the BG that vista adds, you could very well have little resources to run FL.

Drivers are always a good thing… be sure you have the latest ones.

All the best.

BG = background. Vista runs a lot of programs in the background (compositing layers/ security crap). All of this takes a toll on system memory available (not to mention memory addresses taken up by the graphics card). You may be left with very little if all you have in there is 1 gig.
