Yeah, DSP driven plugins are more justified by their speed rather than taking work off the CPU or whatever else they promise. No way I can get a CPU-based setup to below 4ms real latency, thats why people use ProTools and now the UAD Apollo etc. Otherwise DSP cards are mostly a way to protect their plugins from being copied.
Plugin latency issues? Phasing on parallel channels? Want to know the real latency of your audio interface? Try the VMG-01!
