Siginificant Delay in Recorded track?

    There is a significant delay between play back and recorded tracks.
    I just installed the SBLive 24 bit.

    I am recording guitar with mulitrack recording software.
    In track 1 is the backing music.
    I record into track 2 while track 1 plays.
    When playing back the 2 tracks, the recorded guitar audio is significantly
    ahead in timing and the time difference increases as the track plays.
    This occurs with two different multitrack recording softwares (Adobe
    Audition, Power Tracks Pro).
    I ran the diagnostics provided with the card and checked the online
    knowledge base but could not find any solutions.

    I did this all the time with my old SB Live Value 16 and did not have this
    issue at all.

    Thanks you for any help

    This may be an over-the-top solution, but if the recording programs you use
    support ASIO, you could always install the KX Project driver set instead of
    using Creative's drivers (which do not support ASIO at all for the Live
    cards I believe). That should give you much better timing in your
    recordings. The KX drivers have been somewhat quirky particulary in the past
    though, so I will have to point that out. However, it may have improved
    recently, I've not checked them out myself for a while. Still, they should
    work much better for professional use than for gaming in any case, as many
    games are badly programmed to begin with. :)
