Driver Error Compensation not working

  • Live Versions: 1 - 9
  • Operating System: All


Even though a value for Driver Error Compensation has been set in Live's Preferences/Audio, recordings are not latency compensated.


A recording will only be compensated if a track's Monitor switch is set to “Off”.


Set the track's Monitor switch to “Off” during recording. Check the lesson “Driver Error Compensation” in Live's Help View for more details.

In the Lesson's overview, scroll further down and click on "Show all built-in lessons". The Driver Error Compensation lesson is in the Hardware Setup section.
