I recently got a Roland TD-11K, which has an USB output. I plugged it on my Windows 10 and the drivers were successfully installed. I went to the Sound Control Panel, checked "Listen to this device" on the properties of the TD-11K recording device, and it worked!... but with some delay. Impossible to play while listening.
I would like to know what is the best approach to connect my drum kit to my computer and listen to it with my headphones, also computer-plugged, with the same delay and quality as you would have playing with the headphones connected directly in the drum kit. The reason for this is that in the future, I intend to use VSTs to enhance the drum kit and some learning softwares. My drum kit is next to my computer so it makes sense to only use my computer for everything.
Does an audio interface accomplish this? I read a lot of tutorials teaching how to record yourself playing on the computer but none of them explicitly say if or how you also listen through the computer. I just started in the musical area and I'm afraid to spend more money without making sure it will fix this problem.
