[ddots-l] Re: I/O buffer size and latency

The fa66 doesn't. It's console is actually kind of limited. All we have are buffer options.

in the soundcard's console.
i have used many soundcards and they do have this function.

How do you change the input monitoring to go through the soundcard?

i recommend you use 64 because it will give you enough power to record a huge project, and i also recommend instead of using input monitor in your sonar tracks, try using an input monitor in your soundcard, most have this function that is a direct dry signal routed from your inputs to your outputs. and this way you can have whatever latency setting in sonar. any ways you can notice that even at minimum latency your monitoring will sound as a doubler and to me it's very anoying.
this way you only need low latency  when playing soft synths.

Subject: [ddots-l] I/O buffer size and latency


my sonar6 producer installation on an ADK laptop is set to a I/O buffer size of 128(advanced page of audio options). The sonar default is (according to the help files) 64.

I'm using the internal system drive for audio data(7200 rpm drive). I'm wondering what the best setting for the I/O buffer size would be to maximize latency and minimize dropouts. How does this variable affect disk throughput, and with this kind of system drive, what might be a better setting than 128KB?

Currently, I can record at 24 bits with minimally perceptable latency with input echo on. Naturally, I'm trying for zero latency while recording audio, but I start getting dropouts when I start cutting the latency slider any further than 50% for the Edirol FA66(ASIO). Wouldn't recording at 16 bits improve latency(50%less data throughput involved with 16bits from 24bits).

I like the headroom and quality that comes from 24bits, but I want that zero latency for obvious reasons. That's why I'm considering changing the disk I/O buffer size--it seems to be the only variable left that might improve performance.
