ive tried recording like that and its the way you input to your computer. Look for an usb interface or firewire, they have close to no latency unless you have a lot of instruments.

Oh also you can start to play like 5 seconds after you press record and then splice your stuff in.

yeah a good soundcard for recording would do the trick.

Firewire is like usb but a lot faster, at least for recording. I never thought i had one but then one day i discovered the plug on my laptop. small plug into the computer looks like a fat n with 4 little connectors
