I get a lag when I try to record vocals into Fruity Loops, Audacity, etc. What am I doing wrong?

Asked by BoyWonder (806points) April 3rd, 2009

When I try to record vocals into these programs, I get this 2 second lag that really messes me up. I’m using a condenser microphone hooked up to a preamp via XLR cable that’s hooked up to my computer via TRS cable with a 1/8” adapter. How can I get rid of that dreaded lag and hear my voice in real time?

You’d probably be better off running the mic through a mixer (or something with dual outs) and sending out one signal to the computer and then other signal for you to listen to, as there will generally be some lag as the computer processes the signal.
