Re: Threadirqs kernel option with generic kernels

There a a couple of more switches for the cpu's which have by far more influence on the performance of your system, then anything you could do with the priority settings. Give me an example for that "CPU switches"?. The idea for the CPU governor is to save power. And logically this will decrease th...

Re: Threadirqs kernel option with generic kernels

As far as I understand it slowly increases the DSP load and detects at which DSP load the first xruns appears. In addition it also shows the number of cycles. If your system is well configured you should reach 95% or more. What I don't understand is if a DAW that runs with higher priority in the ba...

Re: I just want a stable Linux desktop to develop and run Faust programs

In fact the way to actually boost the performance and minimize the xruns, is to stop networking, during your music sessions and to look and check off any startup modules and services, that you don't use. Does this also account for networking via LAN? Yes it does. Theoretically not as much as WIFI, ...

Re: I just want a stable Linux desktop to develop and run Faust programs

Hi Digital Larry Ubuntu Studio (especially the recent versions) is set to optimize audio performance out of the box. You really don't need to change anything in the system. Ubuntu Studio is already set off. In fact the way to actually boost the performance and minimize the xruns, is to stop networki...

Re: Threadirqs kernel option with generic kernels

Hi lilith and tramp I have two questions, from this ongoing conversation What does xruncounter does? What is exactly measured? How grep became so important object of interest for a Professional Audio? And /proc suppose to contain system data only. Nothing interesting for me and you. PS: What is the ...

Re: Is the right low-latency kernel installed?

Yes
This command will install the latest linux-image-lowlatency from the repositories. This is the "Debian Way"

Re: Studio 1337 3.3 for free!

There is no issue with selling a Linux distribution. I agree there I find nothing morally wrong with selling a Linux distribution, as long as you are transparent about it and provide the full sources (including all configuration and build utilities). I think the GPL puts this fairly nicely: Actuall...

Re: Threadirqs kernel option with generic kernels

Regardless of how the particular Linux kernel is called, if you don't have PREEMPT option enabled, you cannot assign priorities whatsoever. Neither by Jack nor Rtirq. If you have PREEMPT enabled, but not RT, you can assign priorities up to 89. Have that in mind when you set your system. The reason i...

Re: Threadirqs kernel option with generic kernels

You are missing that the generic Debian Linux kernel doesn't have PREEMPT option enabled like: biser@totalchaos:~$ uname -a Linux totalchaos 4.19.0-6-lzk-rt-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Debian 4.19.67-2 (2019-08-28) x86_64 GNU/Linux biser@totalchaos:~$ I am currently using a custom realtime kernel from t...

Re: Studio 1337 3.3 for free!

Hello l0wt3ch and community, I am having mixed feeling about this. At one hand i am currently downloading the mythical Studio-1337. And the first thing i will do is to see, the settings and the parameters. Are they more wide and generic, like in Ubuntu Studio or KXStudio, or are they more narrow, sp...

Re: XRUNS ... but why?

I have Debian stable and I didn't install anything. But there was definitely something wrong, because the xruncounter script crashed with segfault. Only after installing the kxstudio default settings script it works again. Seems logical.In kxstudio-default-settings you have the proper system tuning...

Re: XRUNS ... but why?

That's not bad. :mrgreen: But will this work with alot of VST instruments? Yes, it should. But you need to apply priorities to the VST as well. Guessing that you load them through Wine. If not, then in this low latency sytem state, its more likely to receive xruns from network activity (you should ...

But I also don't need super low latency. I'm even fine with 20 ms most of the time.
20ms you say. Check this screenshot from my Archlinux with gnome-shell. Think of this screenshot as a Linux Audio porn :lol: :lol:

Are there any free option to interface with this mythical Studio 1337. Like oldstable distribution, or documentation explaining what are the unique tools and settings of Studio 1337. The community connection.
