Default Plug in Latency Compensation Question

Hey guys I run Pro Tools 8 LE on windows XP with some Waves plug ins. I was wondering if this statement is true..

"To further confuse the matter, it’s only fair to point out that Pro Tools LE/M-Powered does, in fact, have some degree of fixed latency compensation built-in and any plug-in latency that falls within the hardware buffer should be compensated for adequately by this."

Taken from: http://www.musictech.net/2010/12/pro...orial-latency/

So i'm really trying to find out if I put a plug in on a track and it has 64 samples of latency and my H/W buffer size is set to 512 samples, will there or will there not be any delay/latency?

Will the track play back exactly as I recorded them or will it be off set by 64 samples even though my buffer size is set to 512 samples in Pro Tools 8 LE?

Hope I communicated that OK, any help would be great... Thanks a bunch

Didn't we see this same post a week ago in another thread? The compensation mentioned only relates to the buffer setting and would not correct for additional latency caused by plugins. If you have a mix going, that uses plugins with latency(and not all plugins HAVE latency), you should make those plugins inactive(not bypassed, but grey'd out) to do any overdubs.
