Got a new soundcard (Tascam US-20x20 USB), the output latency is much higher than my former non-USB interface, its around 10ms. So i dropped the buffers to 64 and upped the KHz to 192 in Cubase, now its around 4ms. I turned on 4 softsynths and Valhalla reverbs + some other effects on each of them to test if i would get crackling sound when they all play at the same time, it seems to work just fine with excellent sound.
“Maximum realtime audio processing load” is hitting red all the time though, but the bar below it is maybe halfway. Not sure if the realtime load means much, it doesnt seem to matter?
Is it realistic to think that it will work at these extreme settings? Not sure if its even considered extreme these days, maybe most soundcards work at these settings nowadays? If not, what will a output latency of 10ms do, will my recordings get out of sync (eg. recording vocals?). Obviously i want everything to sound tight and nice.
