    I'm trying to record and electric guitar on Pro Tools 7 and I'm getting a split second delay in playback when I strum the guitar. This is making playing to click track and recording on time impossible. I have the guitar plugged into a POD XTLive stompbox, then throught an Mbox 2 USB to the computer. I'm listening through headphones. Computer specs are Athlon Mobil 64 4000+ (2.6ghz) w/ 1GB DDR RAM, Windows XP, I'm saving the audio onto a 250GB 7200 RPM external hard drive. I have open ended recording set to 10min and CPU usage at 60%. I'm not using any plug-ins. Can anyone offer some advice as to certain settings I should be looking at to solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    DSP delay is normal with Protools LE hardware, try low latency monitoring option.
