My Gstudio machine uses a Gina 24 card. This card have a contro panel where you can choose Gsif buffers from 64 to 2048K. With 2048 the latency is awfull so currently I'm using 256. I was wondering how other users adjust this buffer.
Thanks a lot for your reply. One more question if you don't mind:
In what case going for bigger buffers is recommended? I noticed that cards from other brands generaly do not offer the option to adjust buffer size in Gsif mode.
Thrnks a lot for your reply. One more question if you don;t mind:

In GS2.X, there's no need to run buffers higher than necessary. I have always run them at 64. If you ever hear gapping or clicking, you can try raising the buffer size.
As if will affect GS-3, that's a different story. If a plugin wants to write larger buffers, you can theoretically get some clicks as a result. As far as I know, there's no need even on GS-3 to run Echo GSIF buffers over 128. Certainly not over 256. At that point, you'd start detecting a bit of latency.
You're right about most GSIF drivers not offering buffer adjustments. Echo has always written great GSIF drivers for the Layla/Gina. I think there was one card that has some GSIF problems, but I've sure never experienced one on any of the Laylas or Ginas.
