I know when we use Overbridge with USB, we get N audio streams, and we get a bit of latency (about 30ms worth). OB compensates for this via the plugin, and we don’t set sync in our DAW ourselves. This is all fine (at least if you’re programming and not playing).
The latency, however, was too much for me as a drummer for live play, so I shelled out for an OctoPre and connected the individual external jack outs via an audio loom. This works great for live play. As long as I don’t use Overbridge.
When I use the OB plugin, OB tries to compensate for a latency that isn’t there any more. And so if I want to play live I’m forced to turn OB off, and I lose all the plugin’s advantages: that seamless track automation, GUI control, total recall and so on.
Is there a way to use OB for control only, at the same time as using the individual external outs, without timing issues?
