Space Designer Latency Compensation in Final Cut Pro
The complex calculations made by Space Designer take time, which results in a processing delay, or latency, between the direct input signal and the processed output signal. When activated, the Latency Compensation feature delays the direct signal (in the Output section) to match the processing delay of the effect signal.
Note: This is not related to latency compensation in the host application. This compensation feature occurs entirely within Space Designer.
Space Designer’s processing latency is 128 samples at the original sample rate, and it doubles at each lower sample rate division. If you set Space Designer’s Sample Rate slider to “/2,” the processing latency increases to 256 samples. Processing latency does not increase in surround mode or at sample rates above 44.1 kHz.
