Welcome to day 4 of “Newbie to Ninja” here on WLPR! “Newbie to Ninja” is a beginner’s guide to Apple’s Logic Pro. Videos drop daily (Mondays-Fridays) for the next several weeks.
If you’re brand new to Logic Pro, this series will help you go from feeling like a beginner to complete comfort in Apple’s amazing DAW.
Today’s video picks up where part 3 left off. In the last video we walked through how to set up your audio interface or USB microphone with Logic Pro so you could get right down to recording.
However, perhaps when you sit down to record into Logic Pro your voice or instrument is delayed through your headphones. You play or sing, and it’s almost like the sound of your instrument through Logic Pro is playing moments after the fact!
What’s up with that? How are you supposed to record with any confidence if the timing of your performance sounds completely off?
This delay between when you perform and when you hear the result is something we call latency.
Latency is a fancy term we use to express the time it takes a signal or performance to pass through your system. And sometimes this latency can be so drastic it can make it impossible to record.
So today I want to help you get around any latency you might be experiencing when you try to record. See the video in this post for part 4 of “Newbie to Ninja” 🙂
