  • fxbox adds an audible delay to the audio

    My setup:

    Drum machine with kicks on 1/4 -> main mixer -> aux send -> modular preamp -> fxbox -> modular submixer -> main mixer

    The kick is sent to the fxbox via aux as well as directly to the main output of the mixer.

    With an empty preset, the fxbox adds a clearly audible delay in the chain.

    Is this by design?

    Edit: And yes, if I'm routing the signal thru another module instead of the fxbox there's no audible delay. I tried it with two other DSP based effects.

    It depends what you mean by audible. I would not be surprised by a 5ms delay. More than that and something else is happening. Please let us know.

        Thanks for the file. Yes, you can hear something. And, any time you combine two signals after one of them goes through an A->D->A conversion, you are bound to hear some kind of flamming or flanging. If you don't route the dry signal to the mixer does the small amount of delay present a problem? Can you compensate for it by playing the kick just a tiny bit early?
