Overall Latency?

hey, i am trying to record vocals on ableton live 8. my setup includes a brand new scarlett 2i2 interface, a macbook pro 2012, and a Blue Bluebird microphone. so i have lowered my buffer size to 128 samples, it says my input latency is 5.17ms and that my output latency is 4.94ms. which is fine because some guy told me anything under 8ms is hardly noticeable to the human ear, but then under it i see it says overall latency is 10.1ms. what exactly does that mean? should i pay it any mind, and if i should how can i get that even lower?

    the 10.1 is your round trip latency.  It's the accumulated value of all of your buffers.  The only way to lower this latency is to reduce your buffer size, if 128 is as low as it goes, then that's that.  10.1ms would be great by most standards.
