This is kind of the very definition of not sample accurate.theophilus wrote: more seriously: tempo-synced effects are probably fine (after all, we're talking 1 measly sample) BUT if you have a send routed to an audio track, and are trying to mix 'dry' send with 'wet' effected audio track, they can never mix properly (will always be 1 sample phase offset), not even if you use zero-latency plugins. this is good to know.
To record the send return to an audio track in realtime. Or for a dub effect. Or to route all channels and effects sends using a traditional bus structure, like for multiband sidechaining of the same signal across multiple busses, or when routing all drum channels and their effects sends to a single bus for automation, or parallel compression. One could theoretically use additional Sends as busses instead, yet the mixer can get pretty unwieldy when routing things that way, both in Session and Arrangement View, on very large projects.theophilus wrote: what's the reason to pull a send back into an audio track? really just curious... it seems that sends are pretty much equivalent to audio tracks, except you can send to them... i mean, you can even send from one send to another... automate them.. is it for further processing, and you ran out of send tracks? (maybe 12 isn't enough).
It is what it is.
