Re: Roland guitar synth future

I found this with my old (old, old) Roland GM-70 rig. Latency on low notes 
was obtrusive, but I learned to play ahead of the beat on the low strings 
and after a while it became second nature. For a few years now I've been 
using an Axon AX100SB and the latency on that is negligable.
