UbSt 9,10........Jack?

This is my first response here.  I imagine you're using realtime in jack?
In the limits.conf file you need to allow realtime for a "audio" group.
Then add your user to the audio group in this example.  Something like this:
@audio - rtprio 99
@audio - memlock unlimited
@audio - nice -10

I'm not at my home machine so I don't know if these are the values I have.
I just took them off some forum post.  But this is approximately right.  If
this is even your problem that is.

You can find instructions for this online.  Maybe search for rt-linux ubuntu
or something.  I don't really have time at the moment to find them.

I apologize in advance if this has nothing to do with your problem.
