Latency compensation on Ubuntu version?
I was using the ubuntu version two releases back and was having trouble recording a guitar rhythm track. It was way off. I tried recording the click or re-recording a drum track by going full round trip and both end up late on the grid and/or the original track. Then I saw there was a recent compensation bug fix here so I got the latest version of ubuntu with a much newer version or Ardour. The version number I have now is in the 7 thousands and the bug fix was in the sixes.
But it still records the click late. In fact, you can see it start the track (graphically) a bit late at first (after the playhead has moved) and then fill in back to the start (again graphically) after about a second when it renders the first patch of audio.
Is there something wrong with the Ubuntu version? No I'm not using rt just relying on compensation to position my overdubs wrt the current material. Hardware monitoring on, delta 44, the default jack settings, jack latency in the 40 something ms range.
Since it actually starts the graphical track late, I doubt this can be blamed on hardware or anything else. If it had shifted the region by the "lateness gap" it looks like it would be right. In fact if it would leave that gap in the region, I could just drag it back.
