Recorded Tracks Are Offset / Not in Correct Position

Recommended Posts

Thank you  for reminding us about the Steinberg "Generic Low Latency ASIO driver".  I avoided installing it when demo'ing Cubase back in 2017.  I noticed it recently appeared in my CbB device preferences.  Fortunately, it wasn't being used.  But, why and how was it installed?   Apparently when I decided to try Dorico  (Steinberg's notation software),  that sneaky driver was installed.   The uninstaller got rid of it  (located under the Windows Program and Features window).

I think there's some confusion here as the OP's  claimed he does not have any other drivers listed. , the screen shot was from Roger who is also having an issue and definitely needs to nuke the Steinberg driver.  

The OP is using a complicated set up with 2 interfaces involve. To test I would go direct from the Apollo via USB and see if the problem persists. 

OP here. I get what you are saying...but the setup I'm using is not unusual.

Apollo USB is the only interface my system is seeing.

The Presonus 192 is being used simply as a set of converters for 4 (nice) outboard mic pres.

That way my Daw sees the analog ins of the Apollo along with the optical ins supplied by the 192.

Not sure why externally clocking the Apollo would be the culprit, but I might try the test just to be sure.

It'not "complicated" at all. There is only one wire coming from audio interface to PC. It's normal to use ADAT interfaces to add I/O and to provide clock sync. I have been doing this with Cakewalk & SONAR over 15 years.

I have seen similar looping related sync offset issue many times. More probable cause for this particular problem is high latency plug-ins that messing Cakewalk's internal buffers in loop mode (or similar).

This is a really good point. I've been looking at some of those plugins to see if there's common culprits. 

Every project I have probably has Fabfilter EQ, Maag EQ,  RenComp, Concrete Limiter ( this is often in place before real limiting on mixdown, and I try never to have this on during tracking but worth chasing down to be sure). There are others, but those are literally on every project  in some measure.

I've had it happen on a project where no software instruments are in place, so I think I can rule those out.
