With a couple of tweaks latency can often be reduced, especially for PC/VST setups.
This is always added to the overall latency so set as low as possible, while still being able to play with the desired dynamics.
Always aim for the smallest possible buffer and the highest sample rate which your audio interface and PC setup can handle without clicks and pops.
Experiment with different connections (MIDI vs USB cable), different USB ports. Try connecting directly to the PC or via the audio interface.
Incorrect piezo wiring can add tiny amounts of latency for some modules which do not implement signal rectification. If you are using DIY pads, or mix pads and modules from different manufacturers, research the appropriate wiring.
