Device Overview

Name/Version: Latency Fixer and Recorder by Elisabeth Homeland 1.0
Author: IsotonikStudios  
Description: Latency Fixer allows you to record with enabled monitoring on any track (Audio or MIDI) and correct the latency in your recorded takes afterwards, even if your project includes a lot of latency heavy plugins. Latency Free Recorder Solves the issue right at the recording stage. 

The results are the same, but you can decide which device fits your workflow the best.

In this pack, there are two MaxforLive devices: Latency Fixer and Latency-Free Recorder. These devices are designed to address the latency issue that can occur in Ableton Live.

When monitoring is enabled on a track, the overall latency present in your project will be applied to the recorded takes. This results in the take being delayed compared to a recording with monitoring-disabled tracks.

Default Behaviour: The roundtrip latency of the Audio Driver plus the latency of the project’s plugins is applied to the monitored track’s take.

These two devices are intended to address the same issue but take different approaches:

Latency Fixer: This device nudges the recorded takes backward by the exact current latency amount.
Latency Free Recorder: This device employs a glitch to resolve the problem directly during the recording stage.
The end result is the same, but you have the flexibility to choose the one that best fits your workflow! 😊

This device allows you to record with enabled monitoring on any track (Audio or MIDI) without the associated latency side effect. Instead of using the built-in Record function for capturing a take, you can assign a shortcut (or MIDI map) to the device’s Record button.

Here’s how it works:

Select the track (or tracks) you want to record to.
Press your assigned shortcut.
The device will temporarily disable monitoring just before recording begins and re-enable it when recording starts. This process creates a glitch that allows you to monitor the track without the latency affecting the recorded take.
This approach gives you the freedom to monitor your tracks while ensuring that latency does not impact your recorded material.


Latency Fixer allows you to record with monitoring enabled on any track (Audio or MIDI) and correct the latency in your recorded takes afterward, even if your project includes numerous latency-heavy plugins.

Here’s how to use it:

Arm the track you want to record and enable monitoring.
Start recording your take.
After recording, select the recorded clip on the track.
Press the “Nudge” button on the Latency Fixer device (You can, of course, MIDI or Key map this button for easy access).
You’ll see that Latency Fixer will nudge the clip back to its correct position, compensating for the latency.
This tool provides a post-recording solution to correct any latency issues, making it ideal for projects with latency-heavy plugins.
