    Falling out of time with what? There is no reference to time unless you're talking about tempo... if so, no real means to measure tempo unless I pull out a metronome... Which I ain't doing.

    It all sounds fine to me.

    The way the insert , doesn't keep up.

    Is it important to keep the Processor in the FX loop of the interface at the same bit rate? Like can I use a USB Roland thing at 44.1k sample rate, on a DAW and interface set to 48k ? Will that screw up midi devices looking for a master BPM or timings?

    Does matching a 44.1k sample rate with 48k have anything to do with midi timing?

    This is style dependent in my opinion. Metal and modern rock aren't going to be the same recording process as classic rock, pop, punk etc...

    I've recorded bass rigs (some really nice ones), I've recorded with hardware, I've recorded direct, and I've recorded direct only to add a sim after the fact. They all have their respective place in my opinion.

    The biggest factors in my opinion is the bass, the strings (way more so on bass than guitar), and the technique the player uses.

    This only matters if you are connecting it digitally via s/pdif, adat, or AES/EBU. If you are running it in an analog fx loop it doesn't matter.

    I no longer have the words to explain this.

    How do I make it so I don't chop and nudge?

    How are you monitoring the bass track as you are recording it? When you record the bass, are you listening to the bass track after it goes through the DAW? or are you listening to the bass through the UAD monitor mix in Console?

    In the 2nd video, the Input source for the bass says HD Audio Stereo Input 1. What is that? Shouldn't it be the UAD?

    Good questions.

    I was using headphones when recording to monitor from the Apollo headphone jack.

    It says HD stereo 1 because to get sound in the video I flipped the driver from Apollo USB ASIO to ASIO4All. It came out the laptop speakers for that playback only. The headphones would not be heard too faint on video.

    Do you hear any latency while you're recording? Or is it only after you recorded and you're playing it back that the bass track doesn't line up?

    Stupid questions, I know, but I want to get a better understanding.

    Not stupid.

    It was like that as I was recording. I was fighting the track because it seemed to be compensating for my corrections. Throwing it back out of time. If that is understandable.

    Yeah , the whole time I was like what the hell is this? I was aware it was out of time, in real time.

    Okay so, you can hear the latency as you're recording? You hit the string and half a second later, you hear the audio (or whatever the delay is)

    So, what happens when you play the bass with the UAD and you do not have Reaper running? Like, completely shut down Reaper and just use the UAD and the Console software. You shouldn't hear any latency at all.
