    Precision against the beat


    Playing various instruments (keys, guitars, drums) mostly in a home studio context, I am seeking to improve my precision against the beat.

    I have noticed that I am always slightly ahead of the beat, although consistent. I have measured this on my DAW to be approx. 0,05 sec on average. I usually get a near-perfect result by shifting the audio a few milliseconds, but this phenomenon concerns me.

    When I play something basic, say a 2-octave scale with my left hand on a 120 bpm tempo while focusing specifically on matching the beat, I get closer to it, but I am less consistent! This is beyond me. Is it something usual or is it just me? And is there something I can do to improve on this?

    In case anyone's interested, I fund out that my problem actually came from a bad DAW configuration (too much latency compensation).
