This concurs with my experience. I like rhythms that are "punchy and
precise" (despite that I play a theremin) and I found that to work
with >10ms introduced noticeable "slop" in the rhythm.
The latency issue is a huge issue for precision theremin playing.
Rather than create a long email, here is a link to a post on the topic
of latency for thereminists (you will have to scroll down a bit)
The bottom line: latency has a direct effect on a thereminist's
ability to play in tune.
