I think trial and error is the only sure way, increasing the negative number in increments of maybe 20 or 30 or so. It is tedious, but once accomplished you are probably set for that computer.

Hi, I get the impression that Matthew's issue is that he needs blind steps written out for him so as to perform the Latency Test: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/latency_test.html . I had a thought for example that he may be able to use Analyze > Sample Data Export to export a Time Indexed list file, then open that file to read the distance between the peaks of the recorded clicks. Has anyone done the latency test non-visually and can they help Matthew out? Or is the best scheme to just do it by experimenting with the Latency Correction value until it sounds correct?

In fact, I must go to negative 300 for my music keyboard.

When I record the first track, the vocals are fine, but every subsequent track after that, the tracks are out of step, even when I adjust the latency. I have my latency audio bset to 50 and the latency correction set to -130. The way I test the tracks is put my headphones up to the mic so it picks up the backing track from the headphones. I record about three tracks, and they're all out of step with each other. I want the tracks to be perfectly in time with each other. Using Audacity 2.0.5 with Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit. Soundcard is IDT High Definition soundcard, could that be part of the problem? Every subsequent track after the first one has been recorded goes out of sync. So for example, say I'm recording a vocal or instrument onto a track. I have the main backing track as the primary track, and when I hit the record button, I record instruments or vocals onto a new track. That first newly recorded track would be out of sync with the backing track. All subsequent tracks will be out of step with each other the more I record, until it turns into a huge mess. I've attached some sound files to give an example of tracks out of step and what they should sound like while they are synced together. This demonstration wasn't necessarily mixed with audacity, but is to show an example of the latency issues I face when doing overdubs and/or recording instruments. Audio Track 1 is the wav file with tracks out of step, and audio track 2 is an mp3 of what the tracks should sound like if they were perfectly aligned with each other.
