It is important to use a wired headphone (with a microphone attached) setup when recording with Acapella due to audio latency. Latency is the time it takes for the system to process and play back sound to your ears when you are using the monitor function, metronome, or a guide video.

Recording setups like bluetooth headphones/microphones or using the built-in microphone on your device can cause delay because the audio takes time to travel to its destination which then must be processed on those devices. This introduces significant latency causing your timing to be off or your videos to be recorded out of sync. If you are experiencing this we recommend you switch to a wired setup first to try to resolve your issue.
