Default Lexicon Alpha Latency Troubles

Can anyone advise what can be done to reduce or remove the massive
latency I am getting with a Lexicon Alpha interface and Reaper?

I treid fiddling with all of the settings but nothing seems to help.

Should I be monitoring through the PC sound card instead?

I have a new Acer Aspire X1200 running Vista SP1 Athlon 64 Dual COre
4400+ running at 2.3 GHz.
2Gb RAM.

There must be something I am doing wrong. I read about all these guys getting 4 ms latency. Where do they see that in Reaper and how do I reduce the messy echo box I have produced so far?

Thanks everyone

Bry

I also had this problem when first installing Reaper. The solution for me was to install the asio4all driver.

www.asio4all.com

Since then, absolutely no latency using my lexicon alpha. I run vista 64, 4Go memory, dual-core.

I run (on XP) my Lexicon Lambda with ASIO4ALL, and that works just fine.

I actually did some benchmarking, and it turned out that with hASIO4ALL I could get lower buffer settings than with the native Lexicon ASIO driver, but the Lexicon ASIO driver was more "stable" in the sense that it sampled more timely between different buffer settings.

Reaper calculates a latency for you and shows it in the upper right corner of its window. Clicking there opens the preferences dialog.
