Topic: Latencies on FireWire UFX aren't as low as I had expected
Hi again Guys,
I'm just in the initial phases of using my UFX with Logic Pro 9, on a Mac Pro 2009 Quad Core. I was expecting latencies that were somewhere along the lines of 3ms for 32 samples but am not getting anything as low as that.
The latencies I am getting are:
32 Samples: 4.8ms round trip (audio breaks up, can't use this buffer)
64 Samples: 6.3ms round trip
128 Samples: 9.2ms round trip
32 Samples: 4.0ms round trip (audio breaks up, can't use this buffer)
64 Samples: 5.4ms round trip
128 Samples: 8.3ms round trip
My old Yamaha n12, which I had expected would not be as good as the RME given RME's reputation for amazing drivers, was delivering 3.3ms at 32 samples, and 4.7ms at 64 samples.
I have installed the current drivers for both USB and FireWire. I was expecting that the USB would in particular deliver really amazingly low latencies given the info on the website.
Does anyone have any advice? Is this in fact the latency I should expect? Or are there any tweaks I can try to get a better performance out of the UFX?
Cheers and thanks,
