I'm amazed nobody else has this issue.

What plugins are you using that require the low latency button?
It's not the Low Latency button that's causing a timing error, it's the plugin (or plugins) which have latency causing the timing error.
It kind of makes sense when you think about it, the easiest way around this would be to put a kill switch on the Low Latency function for any operation except recording.

I'll have to go through and pinpoint what plugins might be doing it if thats the case, but here's another lovely thing I've noticed:
This audio offset affects recording too. In other words, I just recording an entire session worth of vocals the other day with a demo singer, and halfway through realized that every vocal was *slightly* off-time. I had to manually move every region over. Not the end of the world but *very* annoying.

I may be able to help you with this.
Recording Delay should be set to 0 (zero) Under Preferences/Audio
What plugins do you have on the Master Output Bus (if any).
What do you have "Preferences/Audio/(General Tab)/Plugin-in-Latency" set to?
Currently Being ModeratedMay 3, 2012 1:45 PM (in response to Pancenter)
Recording delay is set to 0.
Plugins on master: PSP Vintage Warmer and Voxengo Elephant
Audio->General->Plugin Latency: Compensation: All, Limit: 5ms
Should I change the limit?

Ok, first problem...
Under the Plug-in-Latency Compensation should be set to "Audio and Software Instrument Tracks".
The only time Compensation is set to ALL is after all tracking is done and the Mix is being worked on.
Let's just do this one at a time to avoid confusion... I'm pretty sure changing the above would've fixed your Vocal session offset but I'm not sure about the Bounce in Place and Merge functions. You would have to run a quick test on a project with a known problem. Also, for the sake of safety, use a copy of the project.

Leave the Limit alone, that setting is for Low-Latency Mode only.
From the online help.
Low Latency mode allows you to limit the maximum delay time caused by plug-ins. Plug-ins will be bypassed to ensure that the maximum delay that can occur across the entire signal flow (of the current track) remains under the chosen value. The Low Latency mode is extremely useful when you need to play a software instrument (or to monitor through an audio channel) when plug-ins with high latencies are already in use—at any point in the signal flow for the selected track/channel.
