    Rob, I seem to recall there is a setting in Cubase whereby IT takes complete control of the audio "system"?

    I shall see if I can find it but I have not booted up Cubase for many months.

    Dave.

    So, assuming we are talking Windows 7/10, you should plug in/turn on the audio interface before launching reaper. Windows is a curious beast when it comes to audio. We assume you have some kind of on board audio chipset. So, when you launch Reaper more than likely it’s grabbing the onboard audio via whatever driver and when you turn on the interface it can lead to misrouting of the the signal leading to some undesired results, like the playback lag you described. Be sure to turn the Tascam on *before* launching your DAW software and turn it off only after you have completely closed your DAW sw. Wouldn’t hurt to double check your settings in Reaper but plugging in/turning on your outboard audio I/f after or worse, while launching your DAW sw can cause Windows and the sw to have to ‘guess’ at which device you meant to use.
    Another, more extreme approach would be to disable the onboard audio, usually through a bios setting in modern mobo’s. This actually makes the audio chipset invisible to Windows, unlike trying to disable via software settings within Windows.
    When connected, I leave my outboard I/f on, just what I do, YMMV....

    Best of luck!

    Yus^ In fact, although OBS and external interfaces SHOULD co-exist happily, sometimes they don't. "Back in the day" it was standard procedure to stop the OBS (in Device Manager but better BIOS) before letting an external AI or its software anywhere near a computer.

    You could try uninstalling the Tascam drivers, disabling (NOT uninstalling) the OBS. Reboot then re install the Tascam kit. You can then almost always re activate OBS should you wish to with impunity.

    Should add (and this is REALLY old hat!) make sure Windows Sounds, those annoying bleeps and boings are stopped. Can cause sampling rates to jazz about!
