Weird Slate Trigger latency issue when trying to sum out?


I've mixed a song. Now, I'm trying to sum out of pro tools all my tracks to the console across all 16 faders. Here's the problem.

I have 9 drum tracks. I have slate trigger on kick and snare. When I send ALL drum tracks out through outputs 1-2, all is well. However, if I take the kick and snare, and try to send them out through outputs 3-4, I then get latency issues. If I make slate trigger inactive, the latency issue is fixed.

So basically, it seems that ADC is working if all drum tracks are summed out through the same output. However, if I try to break them out to separate channels to my board, latency happens, unless I take off slate trigger...

Any thoughts?

It seems that Slate Trigger is introducing latency that can only be compensated for when ALL drum tracks are sent out the SAME output. As soon as I start breaking them up across the board through different outputs, latency comes in.

But, if I leave Slate Trigger inactive, I can send the drums out however I please with no issues.
