A while back when I was dorming in college, I remember having to do most of my practicing through my laptop and freeware amp sims because amplifiers were banned from the dorms.
The latency on my setup was noticeable but playable, and after 10 mins it felt negligible. However, since getting back home, I've noticed a stark increase in my synchronization and timing with all my techniques. At the same time I've also changed my practice methods, habits, techniques and so forth so it's hard to isolate the cause.
So, while I did manage to improve during that time, do you think that practicing on a latent system like this could hamper progress or does our brain adjust? And, if it is a problem, do you know of any good solutions?
