Thanks for the reply mate.
Unfortunately there is little point in sending screenshots of my audio prefs as after experimenting further i can make it later earlier etc just by changing these.Also it happens regardless if i use my macpro or macbook pro.
In protools 9 its always late! By how much depending on the hardware buffer so i must conclude its nothing to do with the virus but is DAW related.
Also the way ADC is implemented relative to the midi in the DAW is seemingly important.
I just nudge the recorded file into place.Small price to pay for the excellent sound of the Virus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
