    He said 1,5ms is what the plugin is reporting, not actual RTL (which will be significantly higher).

    Get rid of your Nvidia graphics card. Problem solved.

    Neither of my PCs have a Nvidia card. :shrug:

    Hmm it's the usual suspect. If not guilty you should really do an OS optimization for audio. There are plenty of guides around.

    Motherboards also have their own input latency figures regardless of using their integrated audio chips. Yours could be very bad in that aspect, or maybe your newer computer uses a more recent OS with worse manufacturer driver implementation. Dunno. :shrug:

    Motherboard latency is something very few hardware testing websites measure. Anandtech does and I believe eTeknix did until a couple of years. Not the average tests the PC enthussiasts want to see. This changes with every chip iteration so you can't trust brands per se, but Asus boards usually have good latency figures.

    Doesn't matter anyway. The newer build is bricked since it spent a year in my parents' garage. Hoping my 2011 build lasts another ten years because I can't afford to buy a new one. :lol:

    Archetype Gojira standalone, I get the following latency:

    64 samples 1.5ms
    32 samples, 0.7ms
    16 samples, 0.4ms

    No notable pops, clicks or other weirdness, even at 16 samples

    2019 iMac, i9, 40GB RAM and SSD. It's a fairly fast computer.

    Apogee DUET interface, just running by USB2 bus power

    To be honest, even my ageing 2013 MacBook Pro still EASILY gets <5.0ms latency with this interface

    I am not too knowledgable about windows, but I have to assume if you're stuck at 9ms or whatever it must be a software/driver issue rather than hardware limitations, unless you're running something super, super old.

    I got bored and made a fun comparison between Gojira/Nolly/Nameless/Omega if anyone is interested. Only used default cabs and kept the mic positions the same.

    This is probably my favorite plugin today. The black honeycomb amp (5150 I guess) is the most fun amp sim to play with.

    It’s so damn good. Between the Gojira, Nameless and Cali, I feel like I have every tone I could possibly desire on a computer, and almost indistinguishable from the real thing in a mix.

    Very dark amp, but it's been my go to plugin since it came out. Running it with Engl 4x12 w/57, or the Fredman w/57. Beast of an amp. Once I worked on 8 band eq, it really opened the amp up.

    I really enjoy Neural DSP stuff and a I love Gojira, but I really don't like any of the amps in this.

    That said, I really love the effects I've been having a lot of with them.

    I used Archetype Gojira for some textural sounds and the bass effects at the end of this.

    Agree... The delay and reverb are the stars of the show here
