ReWire: Latency?

As you probably know, Protools-6 no longer supports direct-Connect (thanks to the evil, sadistic, m-f bean-counters at digidesign... ok I'll stop now...)

Digi plans to (eventually) incorporate Rewire support into PT. also, of course, Logic already does support ReWire.

Does anyone know if ReWire suffers from the same latency constraints as Direct-Connect?
D-C's current smallest buffer (128K) manifests as aproximately 3.2 ms. that's not too horrible, but most stand-alone soft-synths require the 512K buffer, which means somewhere around 13 ms.


1: Can ReWire utilize (best case) smaller buffers?

2: Is ReWire somehow more stable, so that there is a better chance of being able to actually USE the smaller buffers?

I'm constantly amazed at how unimportant tight timing seems to be to most engineers. Sheesh.....

the latency in rewire progs in dependent on how low u set ur buffer settings for your card...i don't think its limited to any number you can set it to how low ur system can handle

it can't possibly go to zero. what is the minimum buffer, or does that vary with the particular system in use?

What is the minimum on YOUR system?
