Recording LIve: Confused.

Most of my process is penciling in midi. I do some live recordings but it always feels clunky and messy. I am classically trained but whenever I try recording it doesn't quite line up the way i want it too. It seems out of rhythm. Then I go back and fix any mistakes I've made and then I now have to worry about making it too lifeless with the corrections. Part of my problem is that there is enough delay when I hit a key stroke on the midi controller I can "feel" the delay. It's throwing off my rhythm. My mind thinks about the vibration or the sensation of hitting the keystroke physically and the delay of hearing the sound. I've tried reducing the buffer, it doesn't seem to help. So on one hand the delay between physical hit and a sound being produced is throwing off my rythm. and on the other hand I worry about over correcting and timing when i start to pencil. It makes me wonder if my process is wrong in some way. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Edit:
I am on win 7 64-bit i7 first gen 8gb ram
Using a scarlet 2i4 the midi keyboard is attached to the midi input in the back of the scarlet interface.
