larger latency = less load.

I use 2x1024 or 2x512 for recording. But hardware monitoring is enabled (if 
they don't hear their own acoustic instrument by default).

You don't have to. At some point lower latency reduces stability and you 
probably don't want that when recording a musician paid by the hour. ;-)

So you have to find a balance between stability (=high latency) and low 
latency. Of course this is something else when recording softsynths that are 
played live. But in that case you can also record the midi signal (with muse 
or rosegarden (and at some point in the future even with ardour).
