hey guys, is there anyway to know pipewire latency? while I was using pulseaudio the command pacmd list-sinks command | grep 'latency: [1-9]' showed me the latency, is there something equivalent for pipewire?
pacmd list-sinks | grep 'latency: [1-9]'
current latency: 100,86 ms
fixed latency: 100,14 ms
The actual latency can be measured by rerouting your output back to your input and recording eg a metronome click track. Mute monitoring of source track to avoid feedback.
Set the timeline in your audio software to show samples or seconds. Zoom in big time at the first click and measure the delay between source track and recorded track and you get your real world latency in samples or seconds.
Keep in mind that latency is dependent on a number of parameters including sample size and rate and driver performance so a later change of those, as well as switching between audio devices, will change latency again.
