Not at all trying to condescend, just trying to figure out what a solution is, within the framework of Ableton Live.
You tell me that you wish Live didn't introduce latency when using a linear phase EQ and not with any malice I'm going to suggest you don't use a linear phase EQ in a way they aren't intended to be used in. Why on earth would that be considered condescending?
A large part of the problem with this whole conversation has been the lack of information coming from you as to why you 'need' to direct monitor hardware synths that are being triggered by MIDI notes generated by Live, that are syncing up with audio files on tracks in Live, with latency introducing plug ins that mess up the timing. I've never said that it's not a problem for you, and most people trying to help
here aren't, though the suggestions for the most part are to try something different, which has been the subject of curt rebuttals on your part.... as if people don't understand and therefore are being ignorant and arrogant. It might not be how you intended to come across, but it's definitely how you are coming across.
What you're trying to do is at once both basic and at the same time complex and taxing, at least from my perspective. I totally understand the desire to save the printing to audio of external hardware until the end (I like being able to carve the sound in the synth in a premix way etc.), but at the same time it's obvious that PDC is going to introduce some slop to the equation if you want to live monitor the tracks, and to me anyway having to go through and figure out how to fix it is a PITA that I'm not willing to go through, I would rather use one of the solutions mentioned in this thread. If you do find a solution please let us know, but in all honesty the reason you might not is because most people monitor hardware through the DAW where PDC will work properly, and print to audio before they start layering enough plug ins onto tracks to mess up the timing between direct monitoring and Live's internal tracks, or print to audio all tracks with plug ins if they want to record MIDI without PDC and latency etc. So Ableton will not give it top priority.
