Hi everyone, having no external outboards, I have never been interested, but I would like to understand it anyway.

Without Pipeline XT (artist version) it is not possible to add analog hardware signal processors, did I understand correctly?  Or is it possible to add them (obviously with a card that allows it) and it only works as a plug-in that compensates only the latency of the signal from the hardware to the software?

Well, you sort of can.

  1. Set the channel output from Master to actual output of your audio interface.
  2. Add a new track and select the input of your track that matches the return from your connected outboard gear and record a new track.
  3. Correct the latency manually. You can add a blip or some fast transient sound at the start, to line up the new track to it.
This is the option I use for demonstrating in the Artist edition with no PipelineXT

you have been very kind, I took away a great doubt, thank you very much.  so the Pipeline is basically just a plug-in that breaks down that latency.  thanks again, you have been very helpful
