The latency feels much better. I still "hear" the short delay which imparts a sort of really small room ambience for lack of better term and is more prevalent to my ear when pitching up as opposed to down. Block Mix at 100% doesn't eliminate it. It's barely noticeable with a clean tone but with a distorted tone its very much there. In all fairness though I hear this same thing with my Eclipse and Whammy and the III is easily holding its own to improving on those devices. That delay must be par for the course with this type of effect. I used to pitch up my guitar with the Whammy to play Little Guitars but quickly ditched the Whammy for a capo because pitched up pick scrapes just don't sound good at all. Nice job Fractal!
