What a voice! If Mary Spender did a satnav I'd just drive around aimlessly all day :blush:

Love it (and I'd normally run a mile at any mention of METAL) :tongue:

Each to their own ;) I love Dire Straits, been playing Sultans in bands for years.

How much latency can a real guitarist tolerate ?

if the speed of sound is 343 m/s, it takes 3ms per meter to hear the sound out of your amp.

My casio works by measuring the time period / cycle of each string.
For the low E @ 83 Hz thats 12ms to do the measurement.
+ maybe another 4ms to transmit a 6 note chord over MIDI = 16ms (#1)

equivilent to standing 5 or 6 m away from the amp .
Is that acceptable these days ?

(#1) all guess work, if your interested I could actually measure it on a scope.

I have tried a couple of Roland GR systems (as well as the original Korg X-911) over the years and all have had too much latency for me to be comfortable. The latest Boss SY's are latency free. But I decided I wouldn't get the mileage out of it so didn't bash the plastic in the end.

I used a Midisport 4x4 until recently, which was fine. Lately, I have just used the MIDI input on my Focusrite 18/6. Using whatever VST, etc instruments Reason has to offer or an old Alesis GM module (now showing its age.

Nigel,
Sorry for the rushed reply earlier. I forgot to say that the Godin goes through an old Roland pitch to MIDI converter before the interface. Wouldn't make much sense otherwise.
Regards, John

Thanks John, I had made a mental note to checkout if Godin had a model with the MIDI built in rather than a Roland connector.
