I'm assuming you know about stuff that add randomness in Auto Filter, like its LFO being free-running when set to Hz.
I definitely didn't have reduced latency while monitoring enabled. Also wasn't a freerunning LFO thing. I was tuning the filter to resonate at specific notes at different moments in the track. Offline bounce would render completely random notes.

Now I'm starting to wonder if I was using a different filter, if it wasn't the stock Ableton one? However, another plugin I'm beta testing has completely tanked the session and I'm unable to open it to verify now I checked an earlier version of the session without the crashy plug; in that one I'm using Auto it's probably that...I'd just like to be able to say for certain, I hadn't started the specific note tuning in that earlier session yet.

The important thing is I was absolutely experiencing different results offline/real-time, I would love to get to the bottom of this. Hopefully the bug with the other plug-in gets cleared up and I can answer definitively...
