        You may find that if you get a USB audio interface with good ASIO drivers the problem may go away. ASIO4All only converts standard OS sound drivers to ASIO for Audition to use, so you will still suffer from the latency of the audio going via the OS.

          No, not CPU specific. I have a quad core desktop with 8g of RAM. You don't have this problem?  What input method are you using? 

          I didn't say I don't have this problem; I said I haven't noticed it.  I'm using Firewire 400 - Presonus Firestudio Mobile - but my next interface (which I'd like to get this year) will be a USB interface, so I'm interested in all this.

            Thanks for the tip. That answers some questions of mine. I'm looking at the focusrite Scarlett 2i2 because I'm only going to really need 1 input for the foreseeable future. Do you use audition and, if so, have any interface recommendations. The focusrite website doesn't list audition as a compatible DAW, but that doesn't mean it's incompatible. I'm just a but weary of investing in any equipment that doesn't do what I need it to.

              Realdobro; sorry for the misinterpretation. I imagine I you haven't noticed it then it probably works on your system. Are you recording multiple tracks where timing is relevant. i.e. do you record vocals over music that's already in the multitrack? Also, what OS do you have on your PC?

                I have this same problem in cs6. Did they ever fix it? This issue makes the software useless IMO and it looks like I may be switching DAW's for good.

                 

                I believe a bug fix was in the offing around the time of my comment above.  IIRC it wasn't at the time possible to confirm when it would be ready as an update to 5.5, so I'm afraid I did have to jump ship because of this issue. I would be surprised if the fix wasn't in 6.

                  It might make the problem less noticeable, but It wouldn't make it go away. In a way that's even worse - you're recording things out of time, but not noticing it!

                    That's the thing - it was only really an issue when overdubbing timing sensitive material. You wouldn't necessarily notice a few ms delay on a spoken word overdub.

                      It would be nice to have a definitive statement from Adobe, though, about whether this bug has been fixed.

                       

                      This was one of the reasons why I decided not to upgrade to 5.5/6 after doing the trial.

                       

                      At the time my trial period ended, AA3 was giving near perfect asio sync, but later versions were not.

                        I just purchased the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 with a Rode NT1A mic and tested it on Audition cs6.  I tested the timing and latency and saw a MAJOR improvement.  I was actually able to monitor my speech without using the direct monitor function on the interface with no noticeable latency.  Yes, I know there is some latency but not enough for me to hear myself as an echo or for recorded vocals to be out of sync with an instrumental.  I was previously using a blue snowball usb mic and the latency was absolutely unusable.  There was NO way to monitor yourself while recording without a ridiculous echo.  Also, the timing was so off that I had to visually align every track after it was recorded which took FOREVER.  In summary, my current interface seems to have solved these problems.  I just got it and haven't had much time to use it but I will post an update with any new info.

                          Note that this topic isn't about the amount of latency - it's about Audition's ability to compensate for the latency reported by an ASIO driver, however small or large. Assuming you're on PC, were you using ASIO drivers with the Snowball? If so, that suggests that either there was something wrong with the drivers or their setup, OR that there is still, in fact, a problem with the latency compensation in CS6.

                           

                          It may be that you are still experiencing the problem with the Focusrite, just not so noticeably due to the lower latency. Maybe try the loopback test I and others have mentioned earlier in the thread?

                            Uhm. Sorry for necroposting, but I think I might have a solution.

                             

                            I was having exactly the same problem on Audition CS6, and probably dislocated my brain trying to solve it. I even read this whole thread in in hope to find a solution. So this is for those poor souls who come after me:

                             

                            My problem was in mismatching sample rates of my session and my interface. That's it.

                            What I noticed is that I was trying to write in a session I made a while ago. Actually, it was a copy. I was recording several instruments, and decided to make one template session with a click track, guide tracks, markers for song structure and stuff. And then copy this template instead of configuring a new session all the time. And that template was in 44100 Hz. About six months later I decided to put a new bass track, but I've moved to a new audio interface which allows 88100 Hz. So I had my session copied from my template, with 44100 Hz sample rate and my interface set to 88100 Hz.

                             

                            Then when I was trying to set some experiments, I made a new session, and recorded click using the simplest loop-back: i just put a mic to my monitor. And everything worked. That puzzled me even more. And then when I turned back to the problematic session thinking that what I've experienced earlier is just a glitch, and maybe rebooting my system helped. But the latency compensation didn't work again and only then I started to think how these two sessions could be different and remembered that the one I made earlier had a different sample rate. I just didn't think about it before, because I'm used to work in one sample rate all the time.

                             

                            So yeah. Sorry if my response is too long and please forgive me my English.

                              CEP 2000 runs fine here on Win7 x64 as have various other versions of CEP on other Win7 pcs

                              Been running a firewire interface for about 8 years without issue and we constantly are recording takes while monitoring previously recorded tracks without any hint of timing issues (other than the players themselves LOL)

                                Are the players in question commuting from Queensland?  I've been having the same problem for the past couple of days. 

                                 

                                Sorry...I'll return you to a serious discussion now.
