How do I measure and compensate my local latency?

Modified on Wed, 21 Feb 2024 at 10:47 AM

With this tool you can measure the internal latency of your local audio hardware (roundtrip) and compensate for it. After the test, you can play your instrument together with your doozzoo metronome or the audio player so that the other side hears both signals in sync and your playing is in sync when recording with the APP Recorder.

There are basically two places in doozzoo where you can set the local latency. 

1. in the settings 

2. in the current session

1. Adjust the local latency compensation in the settings:

  • Use headphones
  • Log in to your doozzoo account
  • Click on 'Settings' in the doozzoo dashboard and select headphone mode Make sure that the volume of your headphones is not too low.
  • Go to 'Local latency compensation' and click on 'Recalculate here'

  • Hold the headphone cup directly to your active microphone - without wobbling to avoid disturbing noises during the test. This also works with external microphones:

  • Start the test process. You will hear several clicks. Please wait until the last click is heard and the test is finished.
  • Click on the confirm button and save the latency value.

2. Adjust the local latency compensation in the current session:

  • You can also perform local latency compensation in a running session in doozzoo by starting the App (A). (See screenshot below)
  • You can set the latency manually by changing the numerical value (B) or measure it automatically (C). Please mute the microphones during the session so that no noise from the other side distorts the measurement.
