Just wondering about this and the midi latencies here.
If using the gsif drivers, to achieve maxium latecy efficency and performance that has give GS it's widely acclaimed approval in stand-alone mode only, are we being misled by using rewire?
I cannot see how the gsif drivers are being utilized, if when using a sequencer via rewire, GS is fed midi data from the sequencer (subject to sequencer and plugin's latency), in turn fed from your midi controller. To me this just adds up to alot of latency, whereas when using stand-alone mode only, midi is piped directly from your midi controller into the gsif drivers system.
Would there be a benefit from not using rewire say during recording, and maybe only use it for mixing? Or is the gsif utilized even when rewire, and or a sequencer is being used.
One more, what about when using a sequencer and not using rewire, only using a sequencer for midi sequencing?
Can anyone add some more light here? I am not sure how to test for exact midi timing's myself.
