How low does latency need to be for making music?
It’s been established that musicians start to notice latency when it exceeds 20 ms one-way, equivalent to playing 20 ft (6 m) apart in a room (remember that sound travels at 1 ft per ms in air). Depending on the style of music played, however, latencies up to 45 ms or more can be acceptable. With good internet connections, FarPlay can achieve latencies under 40 ms coast-to-coast across the U.S. (Remember to use Ethernet).
