[Ardour-Users] latency compensation

Hi all,

I recall a feature from previous Ardour versions, which allowed some 
sort of latency compensation while recording by telling Ardour whether 
the source of the audio was inside or outside the computer. This feature 
seems to have disappeared, so I'd be interested to know how people deal 
with the following:

1) Syncing new recorded tracks or overdubs with existing materials (1 x 
2) Using outboard effects via a send (2 x latency)

in respect to keeping the new material in sync and in phase with 
existing material. Do I really have to manually move the regions 
backwards so many samples each and every time? Also, is the latency 
*absolutely* fixed to the values I see Ardour or Jack reporting? (I.e. 
is it always consistent?)

Thanks + best!
