What is a ZL instance for?

Zero Latency or  ZL

Basically, the standard instance, and the zero latency instance plug-ins, are almost identical due to the Acqua engine can work with small, medium, and long audio buffers or without any audio buffer.

The instances without audio buffers are known as zero-latency, or just ZL, which does not have any audio buffer pre-loaded and will process the audio without any delay, so at the same time CPU load will be higher compared with the standard non-ZL instance.

The idea behind a ZL instance is to give users the additional option to run the Acqua Effect plug-ins with minimal latency, useful for example for direct monitoring.

High Latency or HL

The high latency instance works in exactly the opposite way as the zero-latency instances and allows the additional delay to be added to reduce the CPU load by functioning as a pre-delay in some reverb emulations.
