Please explain audio recording offset compensation

Hello,

I have two questions about the audio recording offset compensation setting. I can’t find the answers anywhere in the documentation.

  1. To calibrate this setting it says to remove all hardware first. So I follow the instructions and disconnect my audio interface. My question is, would that not mean that when I reconnect my audio interface after calibration the setting will be incorrect for recording via the audio interface as it was calibrated without it?

  2. Since project settings affect the latency, would the audio recording offset compensation have to be recalibrated every time different settings are used (eg. Using a different sample rate or buffer size?)?

Thank you, Ian
