It’s common practice to set your audio interface to very low buffers/latency setting while tracking/recording new stuff, to facilitate good timing and ‘live’ DAW audio timing during the recording process.
It’s also common practice to set your audio interface to much higher buffers/latency setting while mixing, to necessarily reduce the load on the system/CPU as the project increases in complexity.
In many cases this setting has to be changed multiple times during work on a project, and this is inefficient and somewhat annoying. Each time you have to change it to and from each setting is (on my system) 7 mouse clicks - so 14 clicks to change it and change it back again.
Can we have an option to define both of these values simultaneously - one for tracking, one for mixing - and an easy to access button on the main window interface where we can simply click once to change from the low to higher setting as defined already in a menu.
I did consider the idea of the user’s optimum setting being selected automatically by the system when record mode is activated/deactivated, but perhaps this might result in the operator not understanding what is going on and lead to problems and user confusion.
I can’t quite understand why this isn’t already a feature - it’s something which happens so many times during a project.
BTW I’ve tried to do t his with Macros, but the ASIO control panel does not seem accessible through macros, and anyway this would not result in a nice toggle button in the interface…
