I have been trying to practice my timing and have been recording in protools along with a click track. It seems I am very consistently early by 30 to 50 milliseconds. Rarely am I playing behind the beat always just ahead. What I'm wondering is A. How to improve this and B. What degree of variation is considered acceptable.

I would add;

C. What is the accuracy of Pro Tools? ( + or - ?? ms )

D. Would anyone notice the difference of less than one-half of one-tenth of a second? :D

as far as I can tell I have next to no latency going into ProTools I have recorded audio track straight out of Pro Tools routed back in and they line up exactly.

as far as it being noticeable I never noticed it until I actually zoomed in and looked at it now that I know it's there I hear it but that could just be psychosomatic

Call me skeptical.

But you can also call me, 'advanced-beginner' :D so maybe someone else can chime in.

But milliseconds? That matches or surpasses the timing technology used at the Olympics. Maybe you can call me, 'impressed' :)
