I've been thinking about purchasing an M-Audio Oxygen MIDI Keyboard. My friend has the Oxygen-49 and it works just fine on his computer running XP but has latency issues with mine which is running Vista. I need to figure out ways to reduce the latency of the keyboard if I am to buy it. Is it the drivers? The sound card? I'm not sure what I need changed.
It's more than likely the old or generic drivers that's causing latency. Make sure you download them from M Audio's site directly, and check often.
yeah you need drivers made for Vista, A lot of times you'll get drivers with just major changes that make them just compatible with Vista but won't perform well.
It's also likely to be the buffer settings though. More buffers = More latency.
