Huge latency issues when using Vocal Chain

Gave VC a try for the first time today and was unusable for recording as almost a whole second of delay when it was on. Played around with the buffer size but made no difference.

I’m using Cubase Artist, iMac, Monterey


i seem to have the same issue on my MacBook pro 14" , Sonoma , Cubase 13

Vocal Chain is not suitable to be used while recording for live monitoring.
Use it only after all recording has been done. It introduces a too high latency.


It does very much so! In my opinion this would be a plugin that could be used in the direct offline processes if you want to minimize that effect - like I would do with other plugins that are cpu/ram heavy and produce a lot of latency (ie. virtual amps)…
