I guess 1 gig of ram just isn't cutting it I've been trying to adjust the buffer rate in Reaper to where it cuts the latency down while the signal isn't "choppy". This is about 90 to 92 ms. I am also using the KeFIR vst plug-in, which helps very little (but hey, if it is a noticeable difference, it's a difference). Is increasing ram memory the only way to fix this problem? I would also imagine many of you simply record thru headphones, avoiding this problem all together. Any other advise would be helpful!
