Vocal weirdness.. strange delay

    Tonight during a session the vocalist wanted to throw in some references to a song we had just made. I'd already warmed up the 737 like they recommend in the manual and the mic was ready. We start recording, and then we noticed a slight but very noticeable delay .. Her'es how it's setup, I'd really appreciate any feedback on this because I've never really noticed this before and it's kind of freaking me out.. I dunno if it's my mic, pre or Pro Tools or what. . I haven't tried going directly into Pro Tools and bypassing the pre yet, I'll give that a shot but it's jsut weird.. anyways here's how it's all setup.. mic into 737sp, 737sp into patch bay, patched to PT 8 in. Thanks..

    it's not that mic-pre
    nothing there to make a delay

    as with any DAW, PT has latency and you will hear a delay generally and this can be accentuated by hearing hardware monitoring at the same time as the PT output

    if you have added plugs since the original record .. it all gets worse very quickly

    the look a head multiband compressors are bad for this and it could be that you have added maxim or L1 to the main output
