recording delay

problem

Please help. I haven’t had this problem before, but I must have changed some settings or something. My problem is this. When I record, say a guitar track, and then go to record a vocal or a second guitar or anything, I get a delay that is audible. It’s like a split second thing that makes the second track unusable. Please help.

SIR reverb is notorious for doing this, and I’m sure that other plugs will do the same. If you have any plugins running on the aux channels, try removing them one at a time to see if they are causing the problem.

Soundblaster Live or similar? Try recording at 48kHz.
