The program is ancient. This may be causing problems with your OS. Also the sound card is
not optimised for midi. You would do better to buy a dedicated midi interface like a Midiman
midisport. This should cut down on your latency.

: My problem is that it seems to me that there is latency when the note information goes from keyboard to PC.

: This harms when I'm using piano teaching software (Miracle teaching system, I know it's old) and it complain to me that I'm pressing note too late. But I'm SURE that I press the note just right time. Now I think this originate from that latency because when I press some note from the keyboard, the sound from the PC's speakers comes little late. Now folks, is this really a problem and what is solution to it?

: My keyboard is Casio CTK-471, OS is Win XP, soundcard is AC-97 integrated to motherboard.

: Thanks in advance.
