I’ve recently set up a new PC with Cubase Artist 8.5. I’m using a Presonus Firestudio Project interface as my means of recording.
I set my buffer to around 128 and select ‘low latency’ in the safe mode with the interface’s control panel. This gives me roughly 3ms of input latency and 4ms of output latency. If I change the safe mode setting to ‘Normal’ the input latency increases by about half a ms, whereas the output increases by another 1ms. Is it ok/usual for a difference in input and output latency?
What I’m basically asking is; are these ideal settings/latency configurations for recording? I can get away with recording at a lower setting of say 64 but my computer would begin to struggle after 4-5 tracks.
