It seems that mp3s in AE get delayed by about 23 milliseconds. So a bit more than half a frame at 25fps. Can anybody confirm this?

Some AE wisdom that has been passed down through the decades:

DO NOT USE MP3 FILES IN AFTER EFFECTS.

Use a different application to convert the file to wav or aiff files. MP3 performance in AE can NEVER be assumed to be reliable.

Right, I saw you mentioned this in another thread. I won't be using mp3s, but unfortunately, it is still too late to avoid problems as I already synced to them. Now I need to move the real .wav audio by what looks like about 23 milliseconds before rendering. But there are multiple projects, so I want to make sure what the actual delay time is and whether that is the only problem.

Sorry. Can't help you. 23 milliseconds could be the duration of one video frame. Without knowing preciselely what you've done, we can't offer a remedy.
