If you play software synths in live performance, you may want to head over to EigenZone to read a detailed article by Geert Bevin, senior developer of the Eigenharp instruments, who has spent some time researching MIDI buffer jitter.
Geert has been in touch to tell us, "Musicians using software instruments might be delivering sub-par performances and not even know why. Many popular plugin hosts introduce MIDI buffer jitter at the final step, in software, causing the timing to be subtly off during live performance."
