Latency in Colossus

I'm using EastWest's Colossus MIDI software with my USB/MIDI keyboard and I am experiencing a delay that interferes with me trying to play on-time with a beat. I have set the buffer in Colossus's settings as low as it will go (7ms i think). Is the keyboards USB connection going to make any difference than if it were connected with a MIDI cable instead. And I am also only using the onboard sound at the moment on my ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard. Any advice in getting me as close to 'real time' as possible will be much appreciated.

thanks

Latency is not ram related. It has to do with your soundcard. RAM problems will cause other issues (such as the samples cutting off abruptly, etc...).

If you are using the built-in soundcard that's likely the culprit.

To get the best out of your plugins you should get a better card (like and RME).

You can try adjusting the setting of the soundcard you have and see if that helps. I am assuming you are using it in ASIO mode?
