Reply To: Punk band Latency needs

Thank you for your question. Yes, highly rhythmic music is less forgiving than loose jazz improvisation or singing, but you can still do it, and the latency doesn’t need to be below 10 ms. I’d still try it out even with a latency around 20 ms.

An example of FarPlay being used for math metal at about 160 bpm is available at, and another clip of highly rhythmic playing is available at

For very rhythmic music or a higher latency, there will be a bit more work to concentrate on maintaining the beat (and not having the groove gradually slow down), particularly for the drummer.

Thank you,
David Liao
