Don't. That's your problem. Asio4All is not made for real time playing/recording.

Agreed but that might be the best OP can use with his interface?

As I understand, he doesn't have one - he needs an audio interface :-)

ASIO4All is brilliant for playing back audio when you don't have an interface handy, but it very seldom can be used for recording and live playing; the fact that the OP goes thru HDMI in and out slows things down even more - it's like go buy cigarettes at the store on the corner by taking first a bus to the city and back. There's no way to make it work.

What he needs is an interface with an ASIO driver.
