It's a known issue. The workaround is to strip your mix down to the point that you can set the hardware buffer to 64. Print your VIs or whatever. There aren't more than a handful of singers in the whole world who will complain about 5 ms delay. Especially since you'll be able to give them a bit of verb in the cans, unlike with LLM.

i ran last night's session with 64 samples. that's when he complained about the "metallic" sound...
at least it's not impacting timing with the music, i guess.

but 64 samples at 48k is detectable to me and, unfortunately, to him also.

waiting patiently for a bug fix...

for my own education, how do you cats come up with the delay for 64 samples? if i take 24/48 session...hilite 64 samples in the timeline...this amounts to 1.25ms of delay accordin' to the timeline from sample 1 to sample 64. curious...

it actually works out to 1.33 and 1/3 ms. 64/48000 will give it to you in seconds.

it's a funny tin can kind of sound you hear in the headphones when singing into the mike. i don't know, like it's phasing a bit or something. with the voice in your head maybe?

i'm so tired right now i can hardly think straight. it doesn't make sense that you'd be able to hear that short a delay unless it's causing some kind of comb filtering effect with, i guess, the sound of your own voice in your head.

but to make sure it was the monitoring latency i put the h/w buffer up to 1024 and listened to the much bigger difference, switching LLM on or off had no effect.

....now wait this doesn't make sense because at 1024 the time delay from playing a note to hearing it sounds more like a quarter of a second... but from my math that should be like .00213 seconds at 48k.
so i'm doing this wrong. i must be.
time to sleep i guess.

Sounds like you may be monitoring input and return?

The confusion here is between hardware buffer settings and latency times, both of which are measured in samples but which are related by some strange unknown forumula. A HWB of 64 samples produces a roundtrip recording latency of 311 samples on an 002R. My page with details. If you use a different interface, YMMV.

too 'challenged' to follow you on this one but appreciate the link. i guess i'm missin' the reason why roundtrip is involved here. i've recorded myself against a click many times and i know for a fact there were times when my note placement was much less than 301 (64@24/48) samples offset delay to the printed click....not all the time tho yep...confused on the roundtrip application. but no need for futher explanation...i'll re-read your blog post

ok, this post (and some sleep) makes me feel better. so i'm not crazy after all.

and i'm not using a hardware mixer so it's not monitoring in two places. (that would also have been noticeable at higher buffer sizes)

i think the "metallic" sound has got to be some kind of slight comb filtering with the sound in your own head, right? cause we don't hear it in the control room, but we both notice it when we put the headphones on and talk into the mike. AND it wasn't a problem for any other instruments, as this recording has all been PT9. so all signs pointing to phase with the voice on the other side of the ear drum.
