I'm using Ubuntu Studio Quantal 12.10 64 bit, Kernel Linux 3.5.0-23-lowlatency,GNOME 3.6.0  and love it.

My focus is photography and am using Darktable 1.1.2, Gimp 2.8.2, Shotwell, and a few other apps. This kernel
  seems to have a very low latency with excellent results.

My other hobby is music (jazz guitar) and I will be using Ardour, Jack, Patchage, etc.

Question: Why are you removing Pulse Audio? I'm fairly new to the Linux world and I've read comments from others who say the same thing, indicating that Pulse Audio is problematic?

Hi :)

I'm using Ubuntu Studio 10.04 and Ubuntu 12.10, since Ubuntu Studio
12.10 does cause more issues, than Ubuntu 12.10 does. I recommend to
install Ubuntu Studio 12.04.

For Ubuntu Studio with Xfce you can remove pulseaudio. If you want to
get rid of pulseaudio for GNOME 3, than build a dummy package with
it's easy to do and doesn't cause an issue. You also could build the
gnome-settings-daemon with pulseaudio disabled, I guess this is the only
part of GNOME with the hard dependency.
