SoftStep latency


I have tested jitter using an acoustic hammer (for impulse response 
with a driver of known latency. I then wrote a program that compared the 
of the audio when I hit a SoftStep key and the USB MIDI receipt of 
Results were consistently 3-5 ms. Mac OSX 10.6 2.33GHZ Core 2 Duo.

(essential for loopers)

Oh...and what about the price!
