When you record audio into Pro Tools, the time it takes your computer to…receive the input signal, record it, process it, and send it back out to an…output is called latency.…Latency values can be as low as zero or higher than 50 milliseconds on up,…which is quite noticeable, and will most likely negatively affect your…performance while recording. I'll show you why.…I you go to Setup > Playback Engine, we can set the hardware buffer size, and…this is a major determinant of what your latency is.…
If we bring it down to the minimum, 32 Samples, that's really unnoticeable. I'm going to…record-enable this base track.…I am going to play a few notes, and you won't be able to distinguish when I…actually hit the string and when the note comes back from Pro Tools.…(Music playing.)…However, if I change this H/W Buffer Size to 1024 Samples, now you are going to…be able to hear the difference between when I actually strikes the note and when…it comes back from Pro Tools.…
(Music playing.)…This latency can certainly affect your performance, and will most likely not…
