      On the Tutorials page, take a look at the “FIR Designer | SMAART Control” video.

      >> Couple additional questions:
      >> Is the latency of a FIR filter a function of the number of taps?

      No. The latency is a function of the filter coefficients themselves. Take a look at section 7 of the page

      If there is significant phase differences (not time delay differences), then the FIR filters can be used to match the phase and amplitude before adding any alignment delay to some of the channels.

      Remember the latency is a function of the filter coefficients or FIR filter design, not the overall number of taps. The number of taps is an upper limit on the latency that the FIR filter can provide. Again, take a look at section 7 of
