If you experience a significant delay between the time you play and the time that your computer outputs audio, we recommend going into your software's Preferences, Device Setup, or Options to make sure that your soundcard's latency (or buffer) is set to a low number—ideally lower than 15-20ms.
If you still experience too much delay after adjusting your software latency settings, we recommend the free ASIO4ALL (Audio Stream Input/Output) driver for PC at asio4all.com. ASIO drivers generally perform better than the computer's built-in drivers and with lower latency since they create a more efficient communication between audio devices and software.
Yes! To use the Alesis Core 1 with your iOS device, connect it to the using the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter (sold separately) which enables you to perform and compose with audio apps on your iOS devices.
