If there is no “audible” latency, its probably still there and may change the feel and groove of your recording. Each meter music-through-air (listening to a speaker) adds about 3mSec latency. Digital path may add more msec, depending on buffer settings and latency correction inside your DAW.
When you play back a single percussive tone from a previous session and record that one through a microphone and finally compare the waveforms, I’m pretty sure you see a delay in the low mSec range. If you playback both tracks in parallel you should be able to recognize these double attacks as well.
