Question About Using The Pod Hd With A Daw in POD HD Posted January 18, 2014 Wait now...as long as you don't use any DAW FX that introduce latency, you should be able to get sub 10ms latency through a DAW. The manual shows a buffer of 256 samples in the PC USB driver, and says it can be set lower. I set my Prosonus Firebox to 6ms (256 buffer samples) and it never throws me off. There is also a ~1ms added delay for every foot you are from your monitors. You should record at 24bit 48kHz SR -- as it's the Pod HD native rate. You can cut the latency as much in half by recording at 96kHz, but you won't gain any signal resolution and the total CPU use will double. At other SR settings, the real time USB driver SR converter may add latency. Real time SR conversion is inferior and could possibly cause a midi timing sync issue that builds up over time -- as was the case with the old SBLive soundcards.
