Reading my mail I realized that I did not explain it all: the latency 
problem starts when the dac~ is computing audio. As you can see in the 
mixer, when I rise the master volume audio computation starts, meanwhile 
if I set master volume to zero it ends. It is while computing audio that 
the latency problem exists, so I guess the control side is not the 
problem (am I in the right logic?) Nevertheless I have done what I 
believe is an extensive control check in my patch, before and after 
finding that deleting the mixer channels the problem ended. After that I 
did another control check on the mixer part of the patch and found no 
control feedback (my checks are visual, following line after line, so, 
as human, I might be wrong, but I cannot find my error if I did one).
It seems that the latency is present not only in GUI. I send the values 
to a symbol in the main patch to see what I am doing, so I am preety 
sure I also hear the audio consecuences with the same latency (the audio 
rises just when the mixer volume rises, about a second after moving the 
slider if dac~ is on).
Anyway, I will look for some other posibilities of control feedback.
Thank you for your advice
