New to PD and its really great to use. I have a USB MIDI keyboard which, in any program, has huge input lag, making it unplayable (we're talking quarter of a second here, which is huge in timing terms). This was the same in PD, until I opened Audio Settings in PD and started, gradually, nudging down the delay (msec) value. Since that, I get no noticeable input lag at a msec value of 25 (lower breaks with horrible input lag, higher obviously increases input lag because, well, its a delay), however the input lag comes back if I close the Audio Settings window. After applying and not closing the window, there is no problem. I also notice launching my email client with the window open created huge lag, but I see that as being normal, as you're putting more work on the CPU.
My setup for testing is as follows: USB MIDI keyboard -> PD -> simple input to output patch -> USB MIDI adapter (not the keyboard, a different one) -> Yamaha CBX-T3 MIDI sound module.
This system is running windows 10 64Bit
Preferably, I'd like to remove delay for ALL programs. Worst case I'd like to be able to use PD's midi functions without the Audio Settings window open.
Thanks for any help.
EDIT: Clsoing the Audio Settings window and waiting about 5 seconds fixes the delay issue for PD., still have program delay though, such as Ableton.
