Garageband / Snowball Delay

I'm working on Garageband 3 and trying to input 3 snowball usb mics for a podcast. Two of the mics are old (about 2 years) the third was purchased today. For some reason, when recording into the tracks, the new mic picks-up audio faster, causing the sound of a delay on the other 2 mics and making any podcast recording impossible. The older 2 mics are synched-up normally.

The delay is less than a second, but a clear audio problem.

Has anyone had this issue? Any ideas on how to fix it?

not sure exactly what the settings are in Garageband, but in Logic to avoid "latency" you need to increase the buffer size to as large as possible in your audio preference settings

you want the buffer huge when recording and it can go small when mixing
