a bus only has latency if it is running plugins that add latency (typically
things like reverb, FFT-based EQ, and so on). the signal flowing through
the bus will be delayed relative to the signal not flowing through the bus.

if this was done in a track, we would delay all the other tracks so that
the signals all stay perfectly in sync. but when it happens in a bus,
ardour currently does nothing to correct the delay.
