first of all, I know all about buffer sizes and latency compensation etc… My issue is, I don’t feel in control of the latency in whatever buffer setting I use. It feel that some plug-ins will add latency no matter what my buffer size is set to. Is Cubase using hidden buffers that adjusts in real time? Besides Asio Guard.
Sometimes I feels like between 1024 samples and 64 samples, there is no percevable latency when in fact there should be.
We all know that the lowers we set my buffers, the smallest latency we get but it feels like Cubase does it’s own thing. It should not be playable with 2048 samples and yet it is.
Lastly, sometimes I feel more latency on a session at 64 samples with lots of plugins running then on an empty session at 1024. What is up with that? If plugins are getting to rough on CPU, I’ll notice and change the buffer size. Right now I feel like there are hidden buffers.
Can anyone explain to me how or if Cubase manages this differently than other DAWs
