    Now you can see how latency DOES affect performance.
    And guitarists can play 64th notes at 150 bpm in time with a click, over ten feet from their amp.

    Whats your point?

    Latency does affect performance, and people who perform for a living and rely on their timing (musicians and DJs) are able to work with it.

    I certainly think that some of what we see in terms of target latency is about our tendency as DJs to try to achieve technological perfection. Turntablism is like a martial art... you develop your muscle memory. heh

    Where are you getting you numbers?

    Youre talking about the speed of light, not the time taken to play a note have that converted into different types of energy and going through circuitry, then output as sound, then the time that sound takes to travel from the amp to the guitarists ears, and then the processing time the brain takes for our mind to actually perceive the noise.
