    Does latency matter ...while mixing ?

    If I set my hardware buffers to higher levels during mixing (say 512 or 1024) so that I can use more processing power for verbs ... will the increased latency be reflected in the mix?

    I'm guessing it wouldn't have an impact on native run plug-ins, but would be detrimental on DSP powered plug-ins, such as powercore, liquid mix.

    Probably a dumb question.

    No, it won't hurt you at all. In general, if you're not tracking synths, you can turn up the latency as much as you need, provided realtime controls like faders are still operating in an acceptable range.

    Its actually a good way to get some CPU cycles back.

    Many composers record at 256-512 samples and mix down at anywhere from 512-1024.

    Ive always left mine set at 256 regardless, but my Hammerfall card has inbuilt dsp that takes some strain off the machine too. (im also running a dual cpu rig, so that helps!)
