this is really more of a support question, not directly related to

that being said, you might think as i know i have in the past, "why are
there no definitive guides on how to setup pro audio on linux?".. well, the
issue is, it can be quite specific to your hardware and personal needs. i
say, try different kernels, and see what facilitates the latency and
configuration you need (assuming the hardware supports it, in linux). i
will usually try quite a few live iso's before settling on what best fits
the needs i have, and what the hardware in question supports best. one easy
way for me to test an older realtime kernel is by using the AVlinux live
iso. this can let me see if it would even be worthwhile trying to force a
different kernel to be used with ubuntustudio.

keep in mind, we dont support the KXstudio ppa's, or AVlinux here, so, if
you use those, or any other 3rd party sources, it'll be up to you, and the
source maintainers to provide support..

i agree with, and also disable CPU scaling.. if possible, i'll disable it
in the bios, for machines intended for audio production.

what hardware are you using? what latency are you getting? and by doing
what tasks? are you getting xruns?
