Can anyone help with how to change the 'buffer size' on a mac book pro?
I'm hoping this will fix the audio latency of my monitored guitar sound when plugger into the Fire Studio Moblie via a Line 6 Pod.
The owners manual (pg 3 states 'the buffer size is set from inside the host application...' What the!

Thanks

In Studio One you can set the Device Block Size in the Audio Setup.

Thanks sunmachine

I have just purchased the Mac and it is operating with 'OS X Snow Leopard'

How would I set the buffer size from inside the host application?

Thanks again

The FireStudio Mobile is the audio interface. DAW means Digital Audio Workstation and refers to a software application to record and edit audio and midi data.
You can use Studio One Artist that probably came with your FireStudio Mobile as DAW.
To monitor your guitar, you simply create an Audio Track in Studio One, select the input of your FireStudio as source for that track and record enable it. The buffer size in Studio One is set as described in my first post of this thread.

Hope this makes all a little bit clearer...
