Should I be able to get lower latency w/ this setup?

    Hi folks-

    I'm running Cubase 4, Reason 3, Komplete 4 on a Dell XPS 400 w/ Pent. D and 3 gig RAM.
    3 HDD's all 7200 RPM (boot, audio files and samples).

    I did a fresh install of Home when I first got the machine and have done all the tweaks from musicxp.net.

    My current interface is an Echo Audiofire 12, but I was getting the same results from the Firepod that I was using before.

    My largest projects are 50 or so tracks split between 10-15 VST's (mix of Reason and NI stuff) and the rest audio. Some effects, all included w/ Cubase. Though I haven't really been able to get better results with smaller projects.

    The best latency I've been able to get with out stutters/clicks/pops is over 700 samples/45 ms or so of latency, which sucks.

    My questions, should I be able to get lower latency with this setup?
    If so, any thoughts on how?

    This has been killing me lately, and I'd rather not have to get a better computer if I don't need to, but if I don't have any other choice.....


    also, am using the ASIO drivers

    something is not right even with a Dell you should be doing better than that.

    you should be able to run @ 512 buffer (12ms). or at worst 1024 (23ms)

    yeah, you know, that's kinda what i thought. i mean, i realize those prefab machines aren't the greatest, but like i said, i did a fresh install of the OS and got rid of all the bloat-ware, turned off extra processes, etc.

    i can't figure it out....

    almost sounds like you're not running asio on the VST multitrack... but if you are, ...?

    did you try making changes in the asio multimedia setup?
