GUI Meters and Video playback are not latency compensated

  • Live Versions: 4 - 9
  • Operating System: ALL


  • Live does not support latency compensation for GUI meters and video playback.


  • Using a plug-in buffer size of 32 samples should reduce the discrepancy between audio and GUI elements / video.


  • The downside of working with low plug-in buffer sizes is a significantly increased CPU usage and possible performance issues, e.g. drop-outs.
