Default Low latency monitoring question

Maybe silly question, but as I am fairly new to protools le, I'm not sure in it. So is low lateny monitoring works regardless of the buffer size setup? I mean if I setup 1024, and switch some tracks to low latency monitor, will it work? Or the buffer will cause me bigger latency.
Thank you.

Default Re: Low latency monitoring question

Low latency means low buffer size. Optimum buffer for recording is 128. Optimum buffer for mixing and mastering is 1024. This has nothing to do with latency caused by plug ins in various channels and the master channel. I believe when you switch to "low latency monitoring", all you are doing is automatically disengaging the plugins while recording, thus eliminating the latency they cause.

So there are two types of latency:

1. System latency which can be adjusted by changing the buffer size, and

2. Plugin latency caused by plugin processing.

Thanks for the answer. Looking through many pdf's I have found that if you use low latency monitoring, your buffer can be the highest, the selected channels will use low latency mon. The drawback is that you can only use one stereo out with digi003 and low latency monitoring.
