I am thinking of buying a Focusrite - Scarlett Solo interface to record my guitar. I would like to plug my guitar directly to the interface and hear me playing while I'm recording, but would like to avoid latency.
I read that the Scarlett solo has a direct monitoring feature that is able to output the sound without the signal going through the computer, thus decreasing the latency. I guess this wouldn't work with my guitar plugged in, as it'd require the signal to be amplified by a software amp.
Does that mean that there's no way to avoid latency when plugging the guitar to the interface? Or maybe latency is not such a problem these days because of processing power?
