Bug? Feature? I don’t know. This might apply to all computer-based audio, or not.
It makes no sense,working at high buffer settings, to SEE the signals of compressors and EQs drawn on screen a second or more before HEARING the effect. Delay all visuals to be in time with the audio please. Seeing a multiband compressor react to sounds that happened a second ago is very confusing.
Do we have the technological ability to do this yet? Seems like job #1 to me especially if a DAW is going to replace working on dedicated hardware.
