    ive been using LE for 5 years. now all of a sudden when i punch in it appears to record properly but on playback it is way off by a second or so. is it a latency or buffering problem. system is up to date. mac pro 2007 8 gigs of ram

    Have you read about latency compensation in Logic docs?

    Any Linear Phase EQ, MultiPressor, or AdLimiter plug-ins in your signal chain anywhere??

    It sounds fine during recording..its just the play back

    What about the Region Parameter Box?

    Are all the values neutral there, particularly the delay setting? It sounds liek maybe there is a value of 1 bar set in the Delay field. This would explain the behavior you are experiencing. ie: sounds fine when recording, but plays back wiht an offset.

    thanks eli.... are you referring to the preferences>core audio>record delay?. im not sure where the region parmeter box is. I have the latency set at "0" what should the I/O buffer and process buffer be set at

    I'm referring to the thru settings in the upper left of the Inspector. Make sure they are all at default values. Particularly the delay field.

    Command+Shift+3 to take a screenshot of the full screen.

    Command+Shift+4 to get a cross hair tool and take a screen shot of a selected area.

    Maybe posting a screen capture of your Arrange window featuring the problematic project could help us see what is going on?

    In the Advanced message input, you have to use the button Manage Attachments below the typing area, then select the picture file via the Browse... button and finally click on the Upload button

    This is the shot right after the punch and then after i dragged it into the proper position. i thought it may the the "snap funcion" but a different setting didnt work

    It's hard to make them out from the screenshots, but there are definitely several plug-ins in your signal chain, both on the channel strip and the destination channel strip. Plus likely even more on the destination of those bus sends. It's quite possible one or more of them are latency inducing plug-ins like multipressor, ad limiter, or linear phase EQ. These are not corrected by using latency compensation.

    Try using low latency mode. Or removing the plug-ins in the signal chain.

    the snap it "smart " and the drag is "overlap". do the above screen shots i sent look correct?
