The reason it goes up when you add plugins is because live also uses an additional buffer for each plugin. You can clearly see what happens if you turn delay compensation off, put the same clip on two tracks. Find some plugin effect that has no delay itself and can be set to settings that do nothing...

There is a pretty straightforward, obvious reason that the prices have been going up. I'm sure they do not really want to raise prices but they don't have much choice when EUR vs USD looks like that.

What "music professional" uses these cut down versions of various programs? You need to compare Reaper's $50 non-commercial pricetag to these cheap crippleware editions that are not often being used for commercial purposes. Of the items in your list, only Tracktion and FL are exceptions and they are...

USB/firewire inherently has some extra latency in it. You may be able to tweak it a little lower, but USB/firewire latency will never be as low as a properly set up pci, cardbus, or expresscard interface. If latency is of critical importance you should choose one of the latter; should be cardbus/pcm...

I also have to agree, the lemur is great for many things and I love mine, but I wouldn't want to use it as a controller for a mixer (I think a zero8 and a lemur would go well together, really...).

Seems very expensive for what it actually does. Ok, its all in one unit, that's pretty cool. But for a fraction of the total cost, you can get a couple of units seperately that do the same thing. No argument that the zeros are not cheap, but I think you are (seriously) underestimating how much it w...

I checked out the manual that was on the UK site, doesn't seem to sync to MIDI clock from the PC? That is kind of unfortunate, I think.

But my biggest gripe is that the delay in releasing it. Want. Now.

A small number of people had loaner units from Korg presumably as part of their product testing process, I don't know of anyone that has bought one yet and the latest word from the Korg rep on Korgforums was Zero4 in late july and Zero8 a few weeks after.

Lemur supports OSC and MIDI and has for quite a while. Dexter is not a recreation of the Lemur. Dexter is a mixing controller, that is all. You do not drag and drop objects around and create your own interfaces with it. It is just a mixer interface that connects to whatever DAWs it supports, I forgo...

Dexter and Lemur use the same hardware.

Lemur is the fully configurable, build your own interface application that runs on that hardware.

Dexter is a mixer controller application that runs on that hardware. It is not configurable in the same way that the Lemur application is.

here is a big miss that zero 8 has not: separate audio outputs per channel as for example the Presonus Firepod has. Would be nice and handy for playing in clubs where you can hand separate OUTs for the house mixer. Otherwise it is a great piece of gear. When I saw it didn't have direct outs, I star...
