Since I mix live into only four channels simultaneous latency is not a problem for me, although from reading the other reviews of this card it isnt a problem for many more tracks either if your CPU is fast, you have plenty of memory and you dont have other things dragging your CPU down, i.e. software synths.In fact I think the DSP2416 card is one of the LEAST likely cards to have latency problems with. I cant say enough good things about this card. I have the AX44 additional input box and I strongly recommend getting it as it makes things much easier. This card wont become obsolete for a long time as it supports higher bitrates and resolutions. I am using it with Cakewalk Pro9 and it is all its said to be, sounds great with no popping or static whatsoever.

Good Points
All in one mixer system simillar to the much higher priced O2R
Bad Points
Latency, third part software not always supporting all the cards DSP functions
