Default Maxim/Real Tape. Latency issues


I have been trying to use Maxim on the master bus, and RT flanger on a vocal insert recently on the SC48.

with the Vox insert had the vocalist complaining of latency, and with the master Maxim insert, could hear the snare flamming.

Not too sure if this should be the case.

kindly advise.

Default Re: Maxim/Real Tape. Latency issues


You can check to see how much latency each plug-in adds by right clicking on the plug-in icon and seeing its reported processing delay (displayed in samples). 48 samples = 1 millisecond.

As I recall, Maxim uses a look-ahead algorithm, and therefore can have a significant amount of processing delay. This would make it suitable on a FOH mix (where longer latency is acceptable), but could poses problems on a monitor mix. Another plug-in, such as Impact, may be better used on the monitor mix insert.
