Feature req: "Livemode" for signal follower / auto look-ahead


in some situations it would be very helpful, if the signal follower had a kind of “live mode” in which it immediately follows the signal without any latency. Also a automatic look-ahead mode would be cool, to ensure that the timing is 100% correct.

E.g. in this experiment to catch the character of a compressor for side chaining, a env follower without latency is required:


You know that the SFW does have an adjustable lookahead? Like anything that works on sound that has not yet been created, it will increase the delay/PDC by the amount you specify.

But in my experience, you can often settle with very small delays. I’ve found that somewhere between 0 and 1 ms often is the sweet spot.
