thanks for the explanation. It does work better with the performance
setting. I do still get xruns when using midi though. Using sooperlooper, I
trigger recording with the pedal of my keyboard, through an usb2midi
I guess the search for the PREEMPT_RT kernel is in place.. is there a PPA I
could use, or do I have to build it myself? Or is it the
linux-headers-2.6.31-12-realtime? I have it listed in the falk-tx ppa.
