It just send data. Just like the parallel port sending data to a printer. So the only two questions are, does it send data or not. But some PC can handle midi function more stable than others. Maybe somebody should develop a really bulky soft synth and try to measure the latency. So maybe later on we can brag about our PC having a lattency on only 10 milliseconds or so. I cannot think of any other parameter to benchmark. Oogle B.
