Hi, I'm trying to use pod farm 2 with a direct connection from my guitar to my computer via a Tracklink Guitar to USB Interface USQ-110 and using ASIO4ALL for compatibility, but the latency makes it unusable. I've tried everything I can think of in order to get it down. I've tried turning the buffer rate all the way down to 64 samples and switching to Reaper, but neither worked. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Please help!

It's likely because the Trankliink is not an ASIO device.

 

Do you have the standalone license for PF2 or a Line6 interface?

 

If you have just the standalone, you could try recording you guitar into Reaper without PF2 and then add the PF2 plug-in post processing.

The problem you are having is that analog-to-ASIO tends to add latency.  There is little to be done for that.  By the time the signal gets to your recording software, there is so much latency that what you hear is pretty much useless for monitoring purposes, although you can still record effectively.

 

The solution is to monitor the guitar signal before ASIO4ALL gets hold of it.  Many input devices allow for low latency monitoring at the device level.  For example, Line 6's UX1 uses "Tone Direct" monitoring.  You plug your headphones, or monitors into the UX1, not your PC.  Unfortunately, Tracklink Guitar does not give you a way to monitor externally.
