Well, I guess NDSP is right about their sub 3ms latency on the QC (1.75ms with 1 row and no blocks)
Our main issue as users is the variable latency when using such and such Block or Row.
I’d recommend staying on two lanes (Rows 1 & 2) and avoiding external inserts (FXLoops)
I guess it all depends on the type of sound I’m after :
If I need a mushy atmospheric sound then I don’t really care about latency.
On the other hand, if I’m Chicken Picking or playing tight funky single lines or on the “grid” Afro Rhythm parts, then its a patch with minimum rows and no FXLoops.
I think it’s important for users to start measuring their patches when something feels off (with Logic Pro’s IO plugin for mac users or RTL Utility from Oblique Audio for PC/mac users)
And, for anyone using the “1 meter away from amplifier” argument : I do use and amplifier… On top of the latencies measured so, yes, every millisecond counts (for me anyway)
