I am using sequencer vst's as instruments feeding virtual instrument tracks (e.g.B-Step, MUX, Kirnu Cream feeding Dune, Presence, Mai Tai etc). I noticed the PDC does not appear to be applied to the output. The output lags by the 'Total Plug-in Delay' as shown in the status bar. With some of the effects plug-ins I use this can be as high as 90ms and means live playing gives terrible results! Applying manual delay compensation to these plug-ins is either fiddly or not implementable. Am I doing something wrong?
This requirement seems fundamental to useable DAW operation.
