Looping and Latency (was Re: Laptop Looping)

I should add that I am playing an electric instrument - phase
cancellation with the direct instrument sound is a non-issue. 
Everything goes thru the computer, gets the same delay amount from the
soundcard a2d and d2a and then to the playback amplifier.  Lag comp is
turned on in the host for the looping tracks.

“I saw too many people die, and a lot of people didn’t see any of that. 
They had a press conference and left. I’m looking up, fighting this 
incredible battle, and they’re doing press conferences and lying to the 
people. They’re telling them 40,000 troops are in New Orleans. It was all 
bull.”  -Ray Nagin, Mayor of New Orleans
