Default Clock in Numerology !!!!!!!!

Hi Guys,
Here is my wonder ...........
I use a pair of speakers connected to my Mac Mini audio output in Numerology.
I have bought a Bose Revolve speaker that works with bluetooth.
I suppose that bluetooth connection has some latency, maybe 120 milliseconds.
Does it make sense that I could create a stack that uses the Bose Revolve speaker and I would program a clock delay for the other stacks that would use my mac mini audio output in order to try to get in sync?
Thank you guys

I'm not a "clock guru" but usually, isn't latency for "internal" processing? Seems like you are making a choice between monitoring (FOH if you will) and recording. If you "fix" FOH, your recording may be off and vice versa?

In my view, Bluetooth audio is not the way I would go. Is using the 3.5 mm auxiliary input (AUX input connector) on the Bose Revolve an option for you? I see there is also a micro USB (for USB audio).

Hi, First of all, being a fan of surround music, I thought about having some sounds coming from the back to add to the fun of my projects. I do create music for me and I do not record anything. So, that being said, I did some experiments using my Revolve behind me and I knew I would have this latency, but it works. I do understand why you are trying to convince me to connect directly but it is not possible in my situation. That is why my plan is to deal with the clock.
Thanks

Delaying the clock signal in Numerology leads to all sorts of un-wanted behavior for various cases like transport locate and looping -- esp. with an alternate sync source. Your best option to handle latencies of all sorts is to use audio delays wherever you are doing your mix. Also, since you mention using the new speaker for surround, you'll want to add some reverb and EQ as well. Delay the audio going to the main outs to match up w/ the bluetooth channel, add eq/reverb to taste to the bluetooth channel. ... reverb also helps 'smooth out' any latency.

Cheers,
Jim
