RE: RE: latency issues

Hej Per, I just set up my G-Force for a single delay, 100% wet, no feedback. Dialing in 12 msec of delay gave my guitar that RPT-land at an instant, like playing in dow. It starts to get better at below 8ms, at below 4ms to zero it's not a big deal IMO. There seems to be something not quite right in the treble region of the attack even with very low delay times (1 and 2ms), just like you mentioned.

Well, as a working musician a)I prefer to play as soft as the music and the environment allows (the less monitoring the better) and b) I try to stand as close to my fellow musicians as possible. It feels better and keeps the music tight. And you are right, with growing experience you can adjust your playing better. I used to be afraid of going into the old studio of the Berlin radio station because it was a converted chamber music hall with rather wet acoustics for time playing, but meanwhile I've got used to it.
