    alright people I have a digidesign m box 1, which is good don't get me wrong I mean it's reliable but it does carry a latency problem that Ableton can't seem to sort out. Logic has no problem getting round it, but it still does present problems.

    What interface do you have and would you recommend it?

    I use an M-Audio Audiophile 2496...

    Nothing amazing and can be quite limited on the in's and out's it has...

    but it was cheap as, and the latency I get with Cubase is perfect.

    Any emu heads here? I've the emu 1212m, double slot pci card. Not many ins n outs, just the basic. It's got some shit DSP effects on it too. ADAT lightpipe could come handy too and in this price range is all good.

    I've got an Echo Mia.

    Cost me £115 7 years ago and there are much better soundcards out now but it does the job. Latency is about 13ms in Cubase/Reason. Only 2 ins/outs but that not a problem as I have it hooked up to a mixing desk.

    Thanks yeah I tried adjusting the latency but it doesn't have an adjustable input and output buffer size, just 'driver error compensation' which doesn't do much. Il have to look further into it because live should be able to sort it out really. What version do you have? I'm working with 7, bought it recently.

    I've heard a lot of people say the m audio ones are un-reliable.

    How about MOTU? Any users, comments? I've been thinking of gettin a 828, you can the old versions very cheap used.
