plug for PINGING OUTBOARD PLUG IN DELAY COMPENSATION?

Hi there guys.
i use Samplitude 8.2.
great audio engine....very flexible.
BUT...no way tp PING for outboard gear.
i recently found this out the hardway when a nuendo/cubase fellow asked me to put a nice compressor on the snare.
Is there any plug you guys know of that lets you ping this?
is my ONLY option to manualy line it up? Any ideas?
thanks a bunch in advance!

Send something with a very obvious transient like a side-stick sample through the same round trip (easy to compare and measure the delay visually). Bus that track to a new track and you'll see and be able to measure the delay. To compensate for the bus delay (which you won't have when you normally just use the insert) run the same thing again but without the hardware inserted. Then subtract this delay from the delay you encountered before. Now you have your insert delay.
