I will test your proposition, but I am sometimes slow to evaluate.

In my experience pianoteq (closed source) benefits from RT kernel and capabilities (I will re-test to be exact) and I have experienced very high latency with MIDI and PD (maybe the absence of RT).

Some distribution go the extreme without RT :)

 From my side: I need testing to evaluate. Of course I don't have problem to add the extra capabilities.

Just for your information. I have old machine (Pentium-m 1.5Ghz). Fluidsynth (qsynth), aeolus, gigasampler or jack-rack and I don't have audio drop-outs in mine configuration.

I din't knew about StudioWare, I also trying to convert Slackware to audio machine.


I believe the best is to join the forces for packages (I din't saw frescobaldi, or pd in studioware and can't test 64bit for example), documentation, building, testing, e.t.c.
