Re: [LOOP] Re: Roland VG8

Be mindful that there's only so much you can do with pitch extraction from 
a vibrating string - you still need to wait for the string to vibrate 
(usually go through two cycles) so you can get an accurate fix. A smart 
person explained all this to me many moons ago, and he'd calculated that 
for an open low E on a guitar you were looking at something between 20 - 
30 ms, simply due to the period of the string's vibration. One of these 
days I'll find the article he was trying to refer me to.
