Channel strip and reverb plug ins - latency


A question about using the channel strip and vst plug ins. Are they “software” versions of the dsp effects or are they hard wired to the dsp itself? Do they cause any latency?


MR816 has hardware DSP that is accessible via VST insets; even though you can control the parameters through Cubase, there’s no latency on the monitoring side of things. Not sure about the mix side, though in both cases you are using the onboard DSP (using the DSP also requires that you mixdown in real time for that reason).

UR824 has both hardware DSP and includes VST versions as well; UR824 can NOT use DSP chips for mixdown the way MR816 can (and there would be latency on the VST versions, though you could mix down offline).
