no - not once have I ever had issues with that & some of the recordings have 
been hours & hours. I've been looking into the latency issue recently & i'm not 
convinced by some of the stories that go round. For a start the main latency 
issue is often in monitoring & so isn't on the recording so to speak. I've also 
discovered (which is often the case) that latency stats on some recorders & 
indeed on the digital recording process are simply there, as with a ,ot of 
things these days, to protect the manufacturers ie. so they're covered in case 
of any customer having issues with this.

A very knowledgable chap on this group sent a reply about latency on a 
different thread & given what he does he would know if anyone does, but all I 
can say is that in practice i've never had any issues with this in terms of 
sync'd recordings except where recorders have been struggling with issues or 
when using different machines. I guess it should have been pointed out at the 
start of all this that recording with identical machines or at least from the 
same manufacturer is the ideal way to do this.
