Windows 10 64 bit

I have a home recording studio (using Sonar X1) so Latency is a big issue for me.

I've seen so many posts on Latency and suggestions that it will boggle your mind.

The first thing is running programs or processes. There are startup programs that many not be needed. There could be processess that may not be needed. However on a laptop there are extra or special processes such as facial recognition, etc that you may want to keep. So the first place to begin is with the startups - launch msconfig and uncheck anything absolutely not needed (there are some that must be there).

Second, ensure you have Gateway specific device drivers for certain devices. Discounting latency, we have still found that some device drivers require vendor specific drivers (e.g. sound driver) for proper operation.

Wi-Fi, although a big issue with a laptop can also cause latency problems.

So many different things or possibilities - there's not a "one fix" we can tell you about or recommend that will take care of the problem.
