Latency happens when analog audio streams (your guitar signal etc) is  
digitized. When the signal is well converted into ones and zeros it  
can be routed around without any added latency (except for latency  
inducing plug-ins and such).

Yes, sometimes. It is very convenient. I'm doing it on both PC and  
Mac with my RME Multiface audio interface. Each Live mixer track can  
be set to any of those eight outputs on the Multiface (as well as  
additional digital channels, if I should expand it into the digital  
domain - like for example running a rack fx box by the SPDIF or ADAT  
pipe which means no latency since it is already digital. But I  
don't ;-).

Yes, I can certainly see the logic in that. We, on this list,  
represent a marginal market ;-)
