Getting ready to shoot my first video on the SP6 which will be trying to establish whether it can handle a low latency stream of audio. I’ll be showing how it works with Cubase/Live/Pro Tools untweaked and then tweaked. When testing it this morning with latencyMon it seemed to be a bit of a disaster […]
