Is there is a way to identify the exact latency in samples and then compensate? I found a way to do this is another DAW, via a loopback test and then adjust automatically . . . using my Rode AI-1 interface, my latency (64 block size for recording audio) is 460 samples, which is about 9ms.

I'm hoping there's a way to identify and correct this in MuLab, especially when using an interface for both in/out.

right click on the module (that want to figure out) >info
Then you can make it by adding a "latency generator" module and of course turn off "report latency".

I don't know if i was clear enough

Regards.

I think they're talking about IO latency (driver, interface, etc..) rather than plugin/module latency. Helps a lot when recording audio to have it compensated for latency (playing in time doesn't mean an in time recording due to latency).

Hey Tommy, why don't you use the 'Audio Recording Latency Compensation' and just enter the number of samples?

I'm not sure what the number of samples is with my setup + MuLab.

There a litle free program called CE Latency Test Utility
It measures the total latency and reports in samples and ms
Sadlly isn't aviable anymore from the oficial web but, i have a copy... maybe... if is against the ToC the mods would delete it....
i don't know

I used RTL Utility from Oblique Audio. It warned me that the noise floor was low, but still, have me a reading. I'm hoping I can calculate correctly . . . 405 samples at 48k. I think that would be 405 X 0.0002 = 8.1ms. Can someone confirm? Thx.
