Yes but that does not cause latency. You will only encounter latency issues if you are passing audio through the DAW and you want to hear it played back simultaneously.

If you're not actually playing anything, then there is nothing that can be heard to be latent, is there?

If you don't understand latency, this article gives a reasonable explanation:
https://ask.audio/articles/how-to-achieve-true-zero-latency-monitoring-in-your-daw

"There are several aspects of digital processing that can cause latency, but the most significant one—the one that can cause the latency to become a problem—is a technical part of digital recording and playback called RAM buffering."

"[I]n playback, [latency]’s not an issue. Latency may cause a momentary pause between the moment you hit the Play button and the moment the audio starts playing, but it’s only a matter of milliseconds and will probably be unnoticeable. But during recording, it can be a problem for musicians who are monitoring themselves in headphones, through the DAW."


So my original statement “The more tracks, processing, etc used the harder the computer has to work.” is true and a fact... Just not latency... yes, no?
