Reply To: Latency in overdubs?

    So much great info! I just tracked a record and the singer sang and played guitar in front of the monitors (ns10s) without headphones (his request) and it just came out great! The only latency (because we were recording all analog to the 8 track, no computer at all) was the fact that the drums were not completely baffled (because I love bleed) and were about 30 feet away from the singer so he was hearing the signal through the speakers first, the live sound was delayed. If I remembered how to do math I could give you some more info… 780mph… 5280ft in a mile… 30ft… someone help me…

    For digital, the interfaces I use are Metric Halo ULN-8s and they have a balanced out that is pre A/D so I will try using those for headphone sends. But I’d like to know more about this headphone latency problem that Bob Olhsson is talking about! Should I just use individual monitors for the players?

    Thank you!
