A few questions about latency compensation
Right now I'm running jackd with 2 buffers * 64 frames. Ardour reports 1.3ms latency. I'm getting no xruns. Does this sound reasonable considering my hardware? I expected a higher buffer would be necessary?
With the jack settings I mentioned I'm getting synced audio when I multitrack, but if I use a higher buffer(for ex. 1024 ~20ms) there seems to be a noticeable delay between tracks, and between any track and the click track. I thought the latency set in jack would be automatically compensated for?
Second question, does latency compensation somehow recognize hardware latency? If so, how? I thought that would be something I would have to configure? I expected a lot of hardware latency because of my poor sound card, so it confuses me that any track sync delay I experience seems to be related to my jackd settings.

I don't know much about digital recording so let me know if I'm talking crazy or misunderstand something. Thanks!
