Understanding Latency

If you are new to native recording, let’s talk about latency. 

  • To get the lowest latency, go to your hardware playback settings, and choose the lowest buffer size. 
  • If you have plugins that add latency, you will need to bypass them before recording with VMS because those plugins will slow your roundtrip latency times.
  • At a sample rate of 96 kHz, with a Thunderbolt interface, you’ll be able to get down to roundtrip latency times of 2ms, which is less than our little human brains can decipher.
