I've a query about the buffer size settings in GPO Studio. Why, first of all is there a setting for this when it should be controlled by the soundcard's own control panel. And secondly why is the max only 512 (13ms) when this can be inadequate --- both my Audiophile 2496 and ASIO4ALL drivers allow up to 2048 which can help in congested orchestral climaxes and really less than 1/20 of a second delay will be noticed by hardly anyone.
Another related question -- performance (though not stability) is noticeably better in Cubase using the VST plug-in rather than GPO studio. Is this partly because it doesn't try to impose its own buffer settings? I'm really surprised how different the behaviour is in general between the two with each having its own individual little gremlins!
