    Garageband - Midi latency?
    Hi there I'm posting this on behalf of my dad who's having real difficulty recording midi with Garageband. The problem is latency, REALLY bad latency, even when he's recording just one very simple midi track. I have lots of experience with audio applications (albeit on the pc rather than mac) and I have tried everything I can of think and everything suggested in the Garageband book "Create and Record Music on a Mac" but to no avail. I just can't understand how such a powerful computer can have such difficulty recording a simple midi track. He has a G4 tower, not sure of the specs, it's about 3 years old, it has 750mb ram, plenty of hard disc space and he's using an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI soundcard so there shouldn't be any shortage of processing power. He's using the original version of Garageband that came with OSX. Any advice? He's thinking of upgrading to the latest version of Garageband â?? would that help? Thanks Tom
