In MOLEKULAR, the FFT-based algorithms (Fast Fourier Transform) Spektral Hold, Spektral Shift, Spektral Smear, and Vokoder introduce latency that is internally compensated within the software itself. The overall latency is dependent on the used modules and routing. It is therefore recommended that you keep an eye on the latency value so you can compensate for it manually in your host software. This article will explain how to do this in Ableton Live.
- While MOLEKULAR is loaded as a REAKTOR 5 FX plug-in in Ableton Live, open the MOLEKULAR interface and go to the ROUTING section.
- Here, MOLEKULAR's current latency value is displayed in samples. Click in this area with your mouse to switch between displaying latency in values of samples or in milliseconds.
In the example above you can see that the latency value is 58.22 ms.
- In Ableton Live, select Show/Hide Track Delays.
- In your MIDI track containing MOLEKULAR, click the Track Delay section with your mouse and enter -58.22 ms. This means the output of this track will be pre-delayed by this value thus compensating for the latency caused by the FFT based algorithms in MOLEKULAR.
