I’m trying to do some parallel work with the external fx so I need the latency sample accurate. In Cubase if I do the latency detector I usually get a value of around 2ms which is from the converters themselves (although it’s usually 1 sample too much so I have to enter 1 sample less for it to be perfect).
In W10 I’m getting around 28ms which is the converter plus the ASIO buffer (my ASIO setting is 25ms). Doesn’t W10 already account for the ASIO buffer though? When I try this value I get a tight delay (similar to Haas effect timing). If I manually enter in 2ms manually then it seems ok. So it looks like the latency is being reported too much.
Are we supposed to subtract the ASIO buffer from this value?
Also I noticed bypassing an External fx seems to mess with the latency as it goes off then.
Need to test a little more but just curious how it’s meant to work in this situation.
