I'm getting a latency meter reading of 0 in the bottom right corner of my VEP window. That seems wrong, but I can't figure out why. I'm running VEP 64 bit server into Protools 11 with Delay Compensation on in PT.

I've tried recording a snare into protools from VEP, and find the resulting waveform is 58 samples behind the beat.

Hi jalatham, 

Please make sure that you have activated Dynamic Plug-in Processing in Setup/Playback Engine in PT 11. 

The read-out in the bottom right corner is the latency depending on the plug-ins used in VE PRO. 

Best, 

Paul

Thanks for the reply. Turns out Dynamic Plug-In Processing was already checked in the Setup / Playback Engine in PT11. I'm using PT HDX. Don't know if that makes a difference? Latency still showing 0 in VEP despite 5 Kontakt instances loaded.

Hi Jim, were you able to solve your issue? I've tried to scientifically track my latency issues with PT 11.1.2, and have found that latency seems sporadic from my pc slave. At times, delay compensation seems to bring the waveform very close (7 or 8 samples behind). At other times, especially when using Aux returns and multiple audio streams from VE pro on the slave, I get unpredictable results with latency.

The bad news (for me), is that I was wondering if switching from non-HD to HDX would improve things. Would love to hear if you've gained new insights.

The latency displayed in the bottom right of a VE Pro instance window shows the latency inside the instance only. So if Plugin Latency Compensation is enabled in VE Pro and there are latency incurring plugins in the instance, the value will be greater than zero.
