XR18 Latency Windows vs Mac OSX

Hello, 

My main computer for music is a Mac Mini i7 16g Ram with SSD drive.

When I connect the XR18 to this computer (standard CoreAudio), I get 11.6ms latency. But, connected on a WIndows 10 computer (Behringer native ASIO driver), I get 3.2ms latency.

Is there a way to lower the latency on the Mac?    I always thought Mac were the better Audio machines ...

Re: XR18 Latency Windows vs Mac OSX

How are you measuring "latency"?

 

I put an I/O plugin on a channel in Logic, send audio to the XR18, return the audio from the XR18. The "ping" operation indicates a 67 sample delay for the audio to go out and come back in. My calculator says that 67 samples at 48K is .0014 seconds, or 1.4 ms.

Logic Pro X 10.4.8, 10.5.0, X-Touch 1.15, XR18 1.5, macOS 10.14.5|10.15.2
