I've found that when I record sounds with my Scarlet 2i2 in mx6 that everything that is recorded is never on beat. I play it with the metronome and everything and I usually have to adjust the offset time on all recorded tracks by almost 100 (whatever the last number is) just to get it to line up with everything else. VST instruments are fine but whatever I record is like this.

I have a martin acoustic electric guitar, a fender elec, and a Samson cl8 condenser mic and they all lag like this recorded, doesn't matter the input. You can imagine how annoying this is to try to work around all the time. It never used to happen before I got mx6. Any ideas how to fix it?

You are experiencing "latency."
Make sure you have the latest driver for your interface, probably ASIO.
Go to the settings for your device and see what you have set for latency or buffers and try adjusting them for lower latency. Under 20Ms=good, under 10Ms=very good.
Be aware that theres a point where low latency settings can cause glitchy playback depending on your computers ability to process quickly.

I am using ASIO Drivers, I'll check the latency. I'm pretty sure it's set at 20ms. Turning the latency down will keep the audio recorded closer to where it was actually played? I notice that even importuning audio results in a small amount of silence before the actual track. Even when I mix down to an mp3?

Mp3 format always adds a random amount of extra space at the beginning and end of an audio file, mix to wave if you don't want that.
