  • Pro Tools Latency

    So, I'm set on buying a Dig 002 Rack in December, but the one thing that still has me worried is the latency issue. So tell me, how badly does this suck, and what do you do to get around it. I've never heard this in person, so I just want to know what you do to get around this. Thanks!

    Are you talking about monitoring or recording latency? If monitoring latency, then monitor from the mixer. If recording, then you'll have to nudge the tracks back whatever the latency amount is in samples.

      I've got a bud who has a Digi 002. I haven't heard him complain about latency (and he would).

        when I was using LE I was running the Digi001 and I never experienced and latency. At least nothing audible. And that was with a PIII 1Ghz so it's nother special.

          More than anything else I just need to know that I play along to the pre-recorded tracks and know that every thing will line up correctly in the end. As I said, I have no experience with this sort of thing, so I'll just trying to get an idea of how bad it is. My machine is pretty strong Pentium 4 2.4Ghz running 512MB (which will be upgraded to a gig) of PC2700 memory.

            I think you'll be fine... just keep the buffer size aroudn 256 when recording.

              Is that just a standard setup feature built into the software? Just wanna make sure I know how to do it when I make the leap.

                The trick is to do direct monitoring. Monitor your live signal through the mixer.

                  actually one of the features of the firewire based 002's is that they offer zero latency monitoring.....
