Strange latency settings on OSX


    Nov 16 2006 | 10:51 am
    Hello
    I have tested my sound card with a Macbook running Max/MSP. This sound card is supposed to provide a hardware latency down to 48 samples.
    On Windows, in the control panel of the sound card, you can set the latency to 48 samples and then use this latency in Max.
    On OSX, the latency is not set in the control panel of the card but in the softwares. In Max, the available I/O latencies are 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, etc. If I set it to 16 or 32, what does it mean, as my sound card is supposed to work at best at 48 samples ?
    Thanks for your help, -j
