What's the best way to manually exactly align recorded audio in Playlist?

Hello,
It appears to be the case that there will always be at least some latency when audio recording.

My question is:
How to determine the exact amount of latency my FL recorded audio has been recorded with,
so that, in my case, I can manually move the recorded audio into exact alignment
with the beat I just played over.

For example, I tend to record into the Playlist using this method:
-create a beat, or use the FL metronome
-go into song mode, enable record, arm, input, etc
-plug electric guitar into computer line in
-disable FL mixer's latency compensation (so it's not a factor in determining the exact latency per recording take)
-move the recorded audio waveform to the left maybe 6ms, just guessing though
...and that's the part I wish to know for sure without guessing.
How much to actually move the audio waveform to align with the beat I just recorded over

Yes, I can just move it by ear.
I could also move it by sight, visually aligning it.

When people do choose to do this method of aligning the waveform to make it in sync,
-Is there a known way to know exactly how much to move it?
-And if so, is there a precise way to move it exactly?

Just curious.

By the way, at this point I do not want to use the track latency button,
because I like to actually see the waveform lined up with the Playlist grid.

I bet I'm probably overlooking something obvious in this process.

Thanks for any ideas.
