Re: latency info for computers producing audio

i'm using creamware (pulsar ii) and the latency there is pretty minimal.
as far as simply triggering soft synths, it seems ok.  any hardware but
actual an analogue synth feels a little squishy to me, anyway.   i really
like the pulsar series, now that the new software platform is out.
