The same applies for recording vocals with Auto Tune for example is there a way to record vocals using plugins like this? This plugin example seems to add delay while tracking. Another example would be to track midi drums using a TD-20 kit into an audio interface, and into a Logic track set to multi output w/ individual plugins on each track such as compression, eq...etc for each kit piece along with plugins on a bus track for parallel compression, and perhaps a mastering suite on the Master bus. Is there any way to track guitars/bass/drums with a plethora of plugins activated on the tracks without latency or delay? Would an Apogee Symphony setup or PTHDN setup cure this problem? What setup would allow me to monitor with plugins while I play instead of having to use most plugins post aka after all of the audio/midi has been recorded? If either of the mentioned setup's stated above would do the trick and fix this problem how do they work with Logic? The reason I ask is because Logic is my DAW of choice.
I know exactly how you feel. You try to pack more plug ins whwn tracking though (you probably have more CPU available than I do with my Macbook pro 4GB).
I would be happy if I could track DI guitars with a amp sim (guitar rig 4), but plug ins delay makes timing sloppy after a few tracks. I even freeze drum library track (not even multi outs) in kotakt 4, but it simply falls apart.
I started a couple of threads here asking for possible solutions, but nobody answers, no one seems to know how to deal with logic delay compensation.
I´ll probably track with an SM57 and my VOX combo, building over frozen drum tracks...It´s sad not to be able to use the sonic possibilities of the amp sim for tracking.
