Default Spaces 2 Low CPU Mode Trade Offs?

I'm just wondering what I give up by switching to low CPU mode. Is the sound quality reduced for example? If so, how much and in what way etc.

Thanks

The sound quality is exactly the same in both modes. The standard mode has zero latency which needs a little bit more CPU resources than before.

The low CPU mode has a latency of 1024 samples which is compensated by the DAW depending on settings in the host. The low CPU mode is similar to Spaces 1.

Thanks Gerrit, that's exactly what I needed to know. I'm using Cubase on a machine that is aging a bit. And since my application is recording and mixing, the latency compensation should be fine for me and this will save me some resources.

Thankyou very much.
