Another thing...when you record, are you using a single or a multi-patch on each track? You will run out of voices quickly on the K1 if you 1)use all 4 sources on each patch and 2) your patches have long decay and release times. What sounds like delayed note-on could really be notes missed due to tha allowable voices per patch on the multi being exceeded. As I remember you can set the number of voices allowed to each section of a multi. If you're just using singles I don't know what to tell you, since the new notes steal from the first ones when voices are maxed out, so that shouldn't cause a delay. I wwould suspect a bug in the way Cakewalk times events...I'd post your question in the Cakewalk Forum as well.Good
