Topic: Babyface and live hosts: Some research on latency and live hosts
Brainspawn Forte has been a host for playing VSTs live on stage but is discontinued since years.
One alternative, Gig Performer offers sufficient low latency and negligible jitter at a buffer size of 128 samples.

I have been messing around with this topic for some time, and now I finally did it: Measuring the MIDI-to-audio real-world latency and timing jitter depending on the buffer size, comparing Gig Performer by Deskew Technologies and Forte by Brainspawn, my old live host used for over 15 years at >200 live gigs. Audio interface is my RME Babyface pro.
Latency and minimizing it is one of the most discussed topics for digital audio. More than latency, the random latency jitter makes live playing feel untight and sluggish. So time for some facts on it.
