PowerCore: Plug-in latency with different types of cards / units

Question

How much latency do the plug-ins running on FireWire-based PowerCores have compared to PCI-based PowerCores?

Answer

Plug-ins running on FireWire-based PowerCores have the same amount of latency as PCI-based PowerCores: the latency is equal to buffer setting of your audio I/O Device.

Fortunately, most applications have Automatic Plug-In Latency Compensation, so this will not be an issue in mix situations.

When using a Latency sensitive plug-in in real-time -- such as playing a synth -- you can enable/disable No Latency Mode by clicking on the PowerCore logo on the plug-in user-interface (see below).
