Latency compensator

The plug-in reports to the host application that it has a latency (controlled by the plug-in parameters) but does not actually apply any processing to the audio signal. This causes the host to use its own latency compensation to advance the audio fed into the plug-in by the requested amount.

This is useful to compensate for e.g. routing audio via outboard effect processors, where the audio's journey out of your audio interface and back in to the computer introduces a latency into the signal. For example you may find it useful in conjunction with Logic's Helper->I/O plug-in.

For it to work, the host application must support 'plug-in delay compensation' and the feature must be turned on. Recent versions of Logic and Digital Performer support this feature, for example. (Preferences->Audio->General in Logic.)
Latency Fixer requires at least Mac OS X version 10.5.8. The plug-in is Intel-only, and built for both 32 and 64 bit. The Audio Unit version will work in any Audio Unit host. The VST version requires a "VST 2.4" compatible host.1

The AU version is now a 32/64 bit Intel-only build for OS X 10.5 and above.

Mac OS X and Windows VST versions are also now available - previously the plug-in was AU-only.
