I think what you are seeing is more the result of how the phone handles notifications than Berrybuzz. There is no way to adjust this delay in Berrybuzz because the initial notification of the event is handled by the device.

That said - if you have LED Flashing turned Off in the profile for the event, Berrybuzz will handle all LED functions and depending on the device itself there could be a slight delay between the vibration (handled by the device) and the LED tuning on (handled by Berrybuzz once it gets notification that the event has occurred). On my 8900 there is no obvious delay but I think this could be affected by the device itself.

If you don't have LED Flashing set up in the event profile you might reduce the delay by enabling it but would likely see a brief flash Red of the LED before any custom Berrybuzz colors take over.

Keep in mind that while Berrybuzz 2 has substantial capabilities to control LED colors and blink rates from the beginning of an alert it's primary purpose is to address a shortcoming on the BB OS itself - that being that the OS will only keep the LED blinking for 15 minutes and then it will turn it off leaving you with no clear way of knowing that you missed the initial alert.

Berrybuzz is an event reminder more than an event notifier. The ability to control LED colors from the first event notification is an added benefit.
