Latency Compensation

I can't seem to get the latency compensation working in Logic. Does having plugins on the main output cause latency that's not compensated for? 

 

If I record my monitors playing playing the metronome and nothing else then play that recording back and compare it with the actual metronome, shouldn't those two play in sync? They are nowhere close. :(

Hi and welcome to Logic Pro Help. :)

 

Click this link to your signature and add your system information:

• Logic version and sub-version (e.g. Logic Pro X 10.3.2)

• OS X version and sub-version (e.g. OS X Sierra 10.12.6)

• Computer (e.g. MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, iMac)

• Processor (e.g. 2.2 GHz Intel i7)

• Memory (e.g. 8GB)

• Audio interface manufacturer and model (e.g. RME Babyface Pro)

 

(most of that information can be found by choosing Logic Pro X > About Logic Pro X, and  > About This Mac)

I believe you are misunderstanding how plug-in latency compensation works.

Try enabling Low latency mode when you record. Will that help?

I think I am misunderstanding how it works. I turned on low latency mode and that worked great. I guess I had thought that low latency mode was for people who wanted to monitor through their daw. I’m just monitoring through my interface and not through logic. 

 

I even set low latency mode down from its default of 5 milliseconds to the lowest setting and it worked great.
