Re The Propellerhead unit, what do you mean it has a fixed latency and no control panel, are you sure Mate ?
Yeah, pretty sure. Nothing in Control Panel, or under it's program menu or in any folder that i can find. I'm writing a review and am waiting to hear back from Props about it. You can change the buffer in Reason, within Reasons Audio Properties but it doesnt stick. In Cubase it's 5.8ms in and out - nothing comes up pressing the control panel button in Cubase either. Very strange - but at least you're not having to mess about
I think it might be safer for me to leave that up to individual interpretation.. :-)
Totally - but y'know, just a "I think anything over a 6 is pretty good" type thing.
Yeah, i'll poke you about the utility - although i try to not to concern myself with anything too scientific.
Had a slightly better idea than the mic's after a facebook discussion, to use a stereo pulse from a CD or hardware synth and put one side through the interface and one not - plug both channels into soundforge on the other computer and make a stereo recording - easy to measure difference and all the measuring has been done outside the test system (which is something i like). A bit more elegant than my holding mics and snapping fingers - but less fun - and i liked the distance in air bit and huge margin of error
