It still wouldn't help - because you are never hearing anything in realtime. You are always playing a delayed track, this is unavoidable.

Imagine trying to play along with a band with your headphone feed sent through a 1 bar delay. It might sound great in your headphones but the rest of the band will be looking at you wondering why you are playing everything one bar late. They then decide to delay their headphone feed by 1 bar to try and equal it up......this then means that you are hearing everything 2 bars late ......etc.etc.etc.

Of course a 12 bar blues with a monitoring delay of 12 bars would work out just fine.

you canna change the laws of physics, Jim.
