What options do I have to reduce the audio lag from the VST? Ok, so I've posted recently on the Cockos (reaper) forum and they've been super helpful in getting me from zero to 95% of the way there. Enough that I intend on buying the super reasonable license soon. You can't put a price on help like that. (Free plug for the reaper peeps) Now my issue: my lag is still about 23-30ms. Just enough that I can hear it and it sucks, I want to be able to practice & record so sub-5 but at least sub 10 would be ideal. I'm on an i3 laptop with like 4 gigs of ram, so I'm hoping it's not just a cpu bottleneck. My chain is: Guitar > Focusrite Scarllett 2i4 (gen 1) > reaper I open a new track with instruments and set the lepou amp then the lecab with a guitar hacks impulse. Then I arm it and can hear the amp and everything fine. The drivers are set to ASIO, Input is mono, etc. when I set the dial on the Focusrite audio to input I hear the clean signal just fine, but playback has a delay. I know this is a similar setup to a lot of people here, so hoping someone has some insight since I'm new to all of this. Never recorded anything in my life.
