What is a ZL instance for?

Zero Latency or  ZL

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

The instances without audio buffers are known as zero-latency, or just ZL, which does not have any pre-loaded audio buffer and will process the audio without any delay. At the same time, the 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 (i.e., direct monitoring).

High Latency or HL

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