Hi Dirk, I did something like that a few months ago. I had Feisty Fawn 
and then I installed two packages: ubuntustudio-audio and 
ubuntustudio-audio-plugins. You can do it from the synaptic package 
manager. First you need to add the repositories. See 
See also
There are couple of commands you will need to run to get the settings 
right for audio works. It's in there.
This method won't install the themes or anything. You can still have 
your KDE desktop.And both kernels are installed in parallel. You can use 
a GUI program like startup manager, which is vey intuitive and easy, to 
choose a default kernel and to hide the menu list. I do this in my 
laptop and only choose the lowlatency one when i will work with audio.
Welcome and good luck!!
