Question about latency compensation
here's my problem. I usually record bass tracks straight from a nice DI box that I have, then send the recorded signal to a miked bass amp and blend the two sources (direct and miked) to achieve the best results (in my opinion at least). My problem is, the signal I get from the mic is slightly delayed from the direct one, as it is supposed to be because of cable lengths, round trip latency ect.
This delay is very little, and noticeable only because the blended signal loses a bit of attack (or comparing the regions at max zoom). I send the direct signal to the amp using a pre-fader send in ardour. My question is: is there a way to compensate this latency other than doing it by manually moving the recorded region backwards?
