    Thanks mumu – Have you tried insert VSTi effects? I’d be very interested to know what sort of latency it can do going iLive>Rednet PC (audio plugin)>iLive. Obviously it would also depend on the latency of the plugin used.

    Cheers

    Yes indeed one can see the two ms sendreturn in the middle of the video.

    I tried a vocal mic (not in the video) with headphones…good enogh for me..although one could hear/feel it a little bit as the phones where not loud and heard as well my voice resonating in my head…
    In a wedge situation defenitely not hearable…
    And last but not least (just my opinon) i dont need any external fex processing as with the multi q/comp we are well off. Only exceptio for me might be altiverb.
    But as vst instrument player killer!

    cheers

    That’s what I’m looking for. Out of curiosity, what daw were you using, and what did you have the buffer set to?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Hi Mumu,

    I have T112 + iDR48 in combination with DANTE CARD.
    I would like to use plug-ins.
    Is there a lot of latency ? Or is it depended on what kind of plug-in you are using.. ?

    Both of these have actually already been addressed in this thread, the latency is in the video, and the second comment states plugin latency is dependent upon the kind of plug in.

    Ok Sorry,

    Other question to Mumu,
    what Buffer Size have you set in your DAW ?

    Yes please. What DAW and at what buffer? I’m a pro tools guy, but record into reaper, due to PT’s stupid 32 channel limit. I figure I’ll use reaper to host the plugs. Just seeing what others are using.

    Thanks.

    recorded 32 bit float (love it for mixing..

    Ok, thanks for the replay!

    32bit floating point is useless, the iLive is running at 24bit….

    i know but my studio standard (all audio)is float…saves me one conversion step….

    I did some research today and found out that there is a concept to use pcie cards via thunderbolt connection.
    So it seems it is possible to add 1 or 2 or maybe 3 Expansion Card Slot(s) to any computer with a Thunderbolt Port.

    This opens up another can of worms. Rednet to your MacBookPro, MacMini? Sounds wonderful.

    I asked Sweetwater if they have any information about it. The sales person told me that he will ask this question as soon as he sees focusrite people.
    (update: sweetwater talked to focusrite and they confirmed it works with expension chassis, waiting on Apple to approve the drivers.)

    I found 3 solutions so far. I emailed Sonnet about it.
    [:0](update received:”No plans at this time to test any Focusrite products.”)
    [?](another update from the same company: “Hello Burak, I would like to add that we would be happy to support Focusrite to be compatible with our chassis. We have written their support department a message to let them know. “

    Sonnet has a pretty big card compatibility list on their website:

    Sonnet: http://www.sonnettech.com/product/echoexpressse.html
    mLogic: http://www.mlogic.com/products/mlink
    Helios: http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/Thunderbolt/PCIe_Chassis/Mercury_Helios

    Should we get excited?

    When I check the latency, I see 13ms with DVS in my setup. Like many people stated, it is good only for verbs and delays… Not good for channelstrip operations.
    Here is my setup:

    IDR32 w/ dante card
    MBpro(i7) with MultiRack native & DVS
    All gigabit network.

    DVS latency set to 4ms, MultiRack buffer is 64(smaller value causes spikes).
    DVS network latency 0.25ms

    When I do the math: 0.25+4+1.3+4+0.25=9.8ms
    But if I record the direct source and Multirack’ed version(w/o any plugin), I see 13ms difference.
    I remember people in this forum achiving less than 13ms. How did you accomplish?

    I like to hear your thoughts about this thunderbolt expension solution. I wish focusrite produced a direct thunderbolt to ethernet rednet/dante adapter.
