Many interfaces used for Smaart are designed for recording applications, where low-latency monitoring is beneficial and desired. However for measurement purposes, we do not require super-low latency monitoring - in fact quite the opposite.  

 

Your best bet for using these interfaces with Smaart is to maximize the buffer size - this is especially the case when using ASIO drivers with Windows based operating systems. The buffer setting is most commonly accessed through an interface control panel application, and in some cases via front panel controls. Check your interface for it's buffer settings if you are having any issues.
