Default Re: Latency and software glitches on a powerful system?

Thanks for the response!

I was going over the forums and came across a thread that provided some insight on problem 1. There was something really weird happening with the AUX/bus tracks like you mentioned!

I've provided a brief explanation on my workflow to provide a full picture.


I group audio and midi instruments to create buses which go to my 8816 summing mixer. For example, Guitars > Stereo Bus with plugins > Output 5-6 on 8816 > monitors.

I ran a bunch of tests on the routing of those bus tracks to test latency and the results were very weird.


A) All plugins/instruments active. Guitar > 8816 = No Latency.
B) All plugins/instruments active. Guitar > Bus with no plugins > 8816 = Latency
C) All plugins/instruments deactivated. Guitar > Bus with no plugins > 8816 = No Latency

What's odd is that the other session has more or less the same exact setup but I don't get this "aux/bus delay".

As for the 2nd and 3rd problems I've listed relating to MIDI and the loop. I still have no idea what's causing them. I have weird shadows between the MIDI clips on my edit window.
