it would be great to be able to access the frames (128 or 256) setting directly on the MOD, as well as in the browser GUI.
i occasionally switch settings during testing and could find myself stranded at a gig, needing to bump up to 256 for a complicated pedalboard (which is my most common use case), but unable to since i didn’t bring a laptop!
some of my pedalboards would be DOA at 128!
I have been using 256 the whole time and don’t hear/feel a difference between the two. That may be just me…
But even if I did feel a slight difference I would probably stay on 256 because my pedalboards use so much processing power.
Do you hear/feel a difference?
the latency difference is noticeable to me, but not critical – i’m happy with the latency at 256. i usually run at that setting for two important reasons:
like you, i’m often pushing the CPU limits of the Duo
the oft-discussed buffer noise issue is less noticeable at 256.
…since those are both super-important to my being able to use it at all, it’s a bit nerve-wracking that i can’t control that setting on the Duo itself.
I wish there is a way to dig in and change some settings directly from the Duo, even if it means digging through lots of menus. At least I would be able to make a change in an emergency setting. But it shouldn’t be too hard to have a menu for global things like frame… but I’m not a programmer…
