Depends on what you want to do... As long as the latency is *constant*

If you're trying to route the monitor sound for a vocalist through the
computer, latency might be more critical. It feels pretty weird if
the monitor sound is significantly delayed, but I'm not sure exactly
how much one can tolerate.
