Never said anything didn't exist. Didn't deny anything. Put it this way: The start of the signal chain is my brain. Then there's all sorts of stuff going on in the middle before the sound my brain thought up is received back through my ears. I just finished jamming through 5 cables (40'), 3 stomp boxes, and a multiple gain stage analog circuit into a paper cone transducer. I was standing between 3 and 15 feet away from the speaker. A few more or less milliseconds of latency from any one of the dozens of parts of the signal chain simply doesn't step to the front of the class and start screaming IT'S ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Too many people are still hanging onto latency as if digital conversion technology hasn't advanced in the last decade. And the decade before that.
