    Scratching is latency-dependent, but the remix decks are all quantized mate. You could have 100ms latency and it wouldn't matter for remix decks. Most sound cards have some sort of "priority" setting which affects latency massively; going into the ASIO options for my Contours and changing it takes them from around 20ms stock to sub-5ms.

    My VCM 100 has an identical control panel to Reloop sound cards yet the Priority setting has no effect on latency. The "System Performance" option does however, and it's clearly just a dumbed down version of changing buffer settings.

    They do. I'm running the beta TSP2 on a rMBP (2.7GHz Core i7, 16 GB RAM) with my Z2 and able to run with the sample rate all the way down - 2.2 milliseconds latency.

    If you were doing finger drumming with samples that weren't quantized or synced wouldn't it also matter in terms of timing?

    Well if we're talking about 100ms+, then maybe, but not 10.7ms Although I'm not sure using the remix decks (or even the old-school sample decks) for finger drumming is the way you want to go... something like Ableton Live, with velocity/pressure-sensitive modulation and sustain would be better.
