Short Circuit 3: The Quest For Low Latency
I'm starting this thread to document my progress and troubleshooting steps taken in the hope it helps someone else.
I'm trying to rinse the lowest latency possible out of it before biting the bullet and buying a new laptop. The current latency is 20+ms which isn't suitable for scratching.
I've been using NI since Traktor Scratch 1 and want to stick with it if possible.
I'm running TP3 on an old Lenovo X1 with an Audio10 and a fresh Win10 build.
A few steps that I've already taken, followed by a few questions
- I've already run through the usual Audio PC Performance steps
- I've run a debloat script to strip out unnecessary windows stuff
- Audio 10 has the latest available driver
I'm happy to run LatencyMon or make any registry changes that people suggest but may need some help on what to look out for.
Q: I have a Traktor Z2 arriving next week, is it less CPU intensive compared to the Audio10?
Q: Does the Multi-core Support option affect latency? It's currently enabled.
Q: I currently record through the Audio10 too. How much can I reduce latency by recording to an external device?
I'm going to do some testing today and will report any findings. Any and all help welcomed!
