    Hello! I`ll start recording songs and playing live with my Electronic music project. I use 2 different drum modules and 4 MIDI controllers (APC40 , Launchpad , etc…) So that been said , lets go straight to the point : I need as low latency as possible to record via USB MIDI (I have a DTX 502 and A multi 12 with USB MIDI ports) and also , to play my live performances. I really want to know for example , which is the lowest buffer size the uTrack can handle? How does the uTrack handles with MIDI Jitter?. Also to consider , I`ll be running a Laptop with core i5 (core i7 if needed) SSD Drive and Between 8 and 16 of ram. I play my samples using Ableton live drum racks and I´ll have some other channels running with audio inside Ableton.
    Thanks!

    Hi,

    The uTrack24 in ASIO has the following buffer settings:

    The minimum latency will depend on your computer performance (which decent enough as I see correctly)
    In this mode you cannot connect USB drive to the device it act as a standard 24/24 audio interface.
    In USB interface mode there’s no midi support, only audio.

    Thanks for answer.

    So… If I understand correctly , you cannot use the uTrack24 to perform or to record with USB MIDI devices? The devices would be connected to the laptop itself , not to the uTrack24. Having said that , I could still not use it to record MIDI from my modules?

    I don´t want to record inside a USB drive or stick , I would like to record in Ableton.

    In USB interface mode you can use the uTrack24 as a 24/24 soundcard. The midi not involve to this topic at all.
    You want to connect your other USB interfaces to the Ableton, so you’ll record everything there, you will receive the audio from uTrack and the midi from your other interfaces.
    I still don’t get it what is the question, because in USB interface mode the device not a recorder or a player it is a standard soundcard, so if you want to record or playback this have to be done on your computer.
