RØDECaster latency-free headphone monitoring? Yes, no and yes!

Everything you ever wanted to know about latency-free headphone monitoring, but were afraid to ask.

Back in January 2022, I published How to measure audio latency? How much delay is tolerable by human beings when monitoring their own voice live? (link provided ahead). That was the first time I actually stopped to come up with a precise method to measure latency, because I had received a mixer (not from RØDE, but from Maono) and I was very annoyed by the delay when hearing myself via headphones, even after the manufacturer sent me a second unit. Before then, I had never experienced that issue from any audio mixer I had used in the past decades. Previously, I had only been bothered by latency from a computer when a particular USB microphone lacked any direct latency-free monitoring output, like the very early USB mics and interfaces from Apogee and IK Multimedia. This issue began for the first time with a mixer with that Maono device and then continued months later with the RØDECaster Pro II and the RØDECaster Duo.
