A bit late reply this time, but hopefully not too late. :)

In the JACK process ecasound reads audio from JACK input ports it
has connected. The audio data is then routed to internal nodes. Next
ecasound runs one normal engine iteration (including all chain
routing and chainop processing). As the last step ecasound fetches data
from internal nodes' buffers to JACK output ports, and finally returns
control to JACK.
So the whole ecasound engine actually is just one big plugin in the
JACK graph. No additional buffering is done, and thus no extra latency is
