Liquid Mix and Latency

I got to figure that out:

Focusrite specifications say: Firewire contributes a further 2-3ms of latency

BUT: Isn't there a buffer of further 2056 samples introducing further latency about 46ms? (2056/44100 = 46ms)

Yeah, I know, that this is being sompensated by the DAW - but isn't it right, that this latency does affect the way the controls "feel"?

So the one thing I'd like to know is: When you're turning a knob (i.e. adjusting frequency on an eq or the attack-time on a comp), will you instantly hear the changes or is there a noticeable delay between action and sound?

46ms seems to be short, but it isn't - just try to play something like a softsynth with that kind of latency...

If any user could share his experiences concering that, I'd be thankful.
