I'm having some issues making Pro tools function for me in the way I'd like. Its more a problem of my computer than Pro Tools I think but I'm just not skilled enough in computers to be able to fix it. I realize it would probably make more sense to go to a forum specialized for this sort of stuff but I'm not already a part of any such community so I'm trying here first. So ok here is the problem: my H/W buffer size will not go bellow 256 samples which makes it extremely difficult to record anything midi. I've been able to get by recording bass and guitar by muting the track and listening close to the un-amplified sound directly from the guitar. It's not ideal but I was making it work but I can't really make that work for midi. Heck, making patches is frustrating enough when the delay gets so bad.
I'm using pro tools and FL Studio ASIO as my playback engine. I've tried a number of ASIO and the problem is consistent across all I've tried.
Doing some research I was given the impression that my computers sound card may be responsible but I have no idea how I would even mess with it. I've tried looking for tutorials to resolve this problem but I just can't find anything.
My computer is thishttps://www.bestbuy.com/site/omen-by-hp-desktop-intel-core-i5-8gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1060-1tb-hard-drive-brushed-aluminum/5759916.p?skuId=5759916
It's probably not ideal. I didn't exactly purchase it with music production in mind but I'd like to make it work as best I can. Thanks for any help.
