Yes, latency is an issue, especially for drums. I don't know of any multichannel USB audio interface that gets below 8ms (see my post here, the ASIO panels like to lie) and that *is* feelable when you play the drums. The question for me is.. Why the heck do you need to monitor your drums while recording? You can use the direct monitoring feature of the interface (and most others) to still get latency-free monitoring (but also without effects from the computer ofc).
Plugin latency issues? Phasing on parallel channels? Want to know the real latency of your audio interface? Try the VMG-01!
