Very interesting 'experiment.' I'll keep this in mind!
So what your findings show is not an inherent flaw in digital processing, but a simple matter of housekeeping. Meaning that even older plugs can be whipped into shape if you know how to compensate. And in the case of newer software, it's done for you - most contemporary software is "intelligent" re: latency compensation.
