New Tool Measures Latency


The Ploytec Latenc-o-meter is a Latency Tester / Delay Meter which the makers describe as a unique tool for finding the truth about latency.
The unit generates a ‘click’ signal on its analog output (the red cinch connector) and waits until it returns on the input (the black cinch connector). In the meantime it samples that input on its A/D converter running at a 100kHz sample rate for total accuracy. The measurement range goes from 0.01ms to 999.99ms.
The red button switches it on while pressed, new clicks are generated every few seconds. It runs from a 9V block battery which Ploytec say is easy to replace but should last for ages depending on your application.
Ploytec say that they use the use the Latenc-o-meter for development of their external USB2 soundcards and drivers, but believe that there's tons of further applications including checking your studio setup, testing digital audio equipment and VoIP.
