Someone recently mentioned connection graphs in Ardour but I don't
recall if it was to do with latency calculations. Does Ardour adjust for
latencies at every connection in the system? If not, for which subset of
points are adjustments made?

As an example, if I insert a gate on one track and trigger it from
another track (either/both tracks may be running other plugins as well),
can I expect the gate trigger and gate input to be in sync?
