Thanks for the heads up, I'll keep an eye on it in case I'm overlooking something or maybe what I'm speaking of isn't directly related.
On my hdsp it's 95 samples, no matter what samplerate or operating system.

I don't think you have to worry at all with rme, unless if you switch to linux, then I'd forgo using class compliant USB and use FW if it's supported by alsa or ffado.

I think one problem is that we are mixing a few subjects together in this discussion and it's difficult to be precise with words when writing posts on a forum. It's not like we are academics discussing a topic in an academic setting spending days or weeks writing accurate essays

Edit: You can use reainsert to do a loopback test too. I'd be interested to know if it agrees with your results and gives a 0 samples adjustment after you've configured reapers recording settings with the right values.
