Recording sounds -- delay in starting?

I guess it's the buffer starting up first before recording. It would 
have to be constantly running for it to be able to start instantly. 
Some dedicated audio apps can 'pre listen' the audio stream 
constantly and avoid missed cues. Rev audio is not that 
sophisticated.  Buffer latency would be a nice property to have.

The delay is a bit annoying. I made a stack that uses a prompt for 
the voice over reader to wait until it turns red and "record" for a 
cue. It works quite well. Let the app cue you when to transfer or 
speak, not the other way around.
