What product are you using? Looking at the web site the products are primarily aimed at the gaming consoles, not PC's.

I'm not using a certain product, just plugged a mic into my pc and monitored it, and i get a nasty delay. I had the same problem with xp, but asio4all took care of it. Not the case with win 7. Just waiting for the fix for 7 so I can justify why it is that I prefer Pc to a Mac.

Uh.. well you need a sound system (with assiciated drivers) that is low latency. Most craptastic built-in audio chips are hardly usable for production level sound latencys between mic or midi input and audio output.

Maybe you will get lucky by getting the drivers for your sound chip off of the manufacturers website (For Windows 7 of course)

Otherwise, get something from Midiman though if you actually need like 2ms latency on your sound output...

Doing a google search, there are several posts about problems or "not happy" withthe Rocketfish sound cards. Looking at the prices posted, many are under $10 which says it's not a "high end" sound card and thus can have problems including latency.

However, there can be other system (hardware) issues causing latency.

I won't get into the PC/MAC thing. But, I see a lot of complaints and problems with Mac's that are used for recording on the gearslutz forum, so it's not "problem free".

Actually their sound cards are nothing more than a stripped down (components missing looking at it on their site) X-Fi Xtreme Audio.

You could try the latest Xtreme Audio driver or the one in this modded set,

SB P17X Series Support Pack 2.7 (04/01/2010) - Aud... - Creative Labs

May find that neither will install though without adding the DevID to the INF. Here they are from the rocketfish version of the driver,

Code:
[Creative.NTX86.6]
;; Rocketfish 7.1
%CTAudio_Device1.Dev.ntx86%=CTAudio_Device1,PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0007&SUBSYS_10141102
;; Rocketfish 5.1 
%CTAudio_Device5.Dev.ntx86%=CTAudio_Device5,PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0007&SUBSYS_10011102

[Creative.NTAMD64.6]
;;Rocketfish 7.1 
%CTAudio_Device1.Dev.amd64%=CTAudio_Device1,PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0007&SUBSYS_10141102
;; Rocketfish 5.1 
%CTAudio_Device5.Dev.amd64%=CTAudio_Device5,PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0007&SUBSYS_10011102
If you do decide to try either of the above drivers, after downloading extract it and look for the Drivers folder to find the INF.
