Re: Standard test needed to benchmark XRUNs

xruncounter is very useful, thanks once more for the great job Tramp! And thanks merlyn + Drumfix for the tips about buffersizes and circles: after the tenth read this is finally making it through my thick skull ;-) So let's join the party: Here are some preliminary results on my 5+ y old notebook (...

Re: Ardour crash?

No idea what is going on in your case, but that's probably worth reporting:

Edit: Don't forget to read this as well, or you might end up disappointed.

Re: Trying to run 2 jackd, one for Guitarix

Ah, ok. I see very well where's you've been with those resamplers. I'm not going down that rabbit hole again (at least in the current state of technology) - life is just too short ;-) If the need really arise, I'd rather drop Guitarix and use my analog signal chain (I hope Tramp doesn't read this :D...

Re: Trying to run 2 jackd, one for Guitarix

Sorry, I meant latency compensation rather that synchronization. But actually in your case it should be exactly the same as recording live guitar straight into a DAW, so nevermind. The resampling however does happen, since you go out of the Guitarix soundcard to the qtracktor soundcard using analog ...

Re: Trying to run 2 jackd, one for Guitarix

Very nice ;-) I tried it as well a while ago, but with a single audio interface and that didn't go very well: I tried to use Zita-ajbridge to connect both jack instances (possibly also with a loopback, I don't remember very well). The outcome was mostly a flock of xruns - which defeats the original ...

Re: cyclictest

Interesting results. Even at 540 us worst case latency the stock kernel does quite ok'ish for audio. Regarding those RT results with one core acting up: did you try to run the RT cyclictest with 3 cores? I'm wondering if sacrificing one core wouldn't actually help. It could be also a matter of RT pr...

Re: cyclictest

It's CPU1 (the green line) that's letting the side down. :) The other three CPUs have a really good maximum latency -- around 50 microseconds. That's 0.05 milliseconds. It's interesting that CPU1 is so much worse than the others. Makes you wonder if there's anything tied to CPU1. If there's somethi...

Re: cyclictest

I found also (empirically) that 4.19 RT is exceptionally good, but I have unfortunately not much time to join the benchmark fest. Looking at the results from the old threads on LM, it seems we are getting better: most of the results 2y ago were around 150us, now we're reliably getting below 100us - ...

Re: One month and counting without RT kernel on Arch Linux

Yeah, Nvidia + RT is not the easiest going combo for audio (although it seems to be working for some people). But it is not up to Arch to delay upgrades to support proprietary drivers - rather the opposite ;-) Anyway, if you want to pitch Linux-ZEN against the latest stock or RT, why not run a few b...

Re: One month and counting without RT kernel on Arch Linux

I think the Archlinux zen kernel is the way to go. Another plus is that it uses the newer I/O schedules like kyber/mq-deadline/bfq for better multi read/wrrite performance on HDD's. This kernel also has optimized the RCU timer threshold setting for more responsiveness. Attached is a zip I created t...

Re: One month and counting without RT kernel on Arch Linux

Gimmeapill do you not disable obviously irrelevant stuff in your kernel config? I used to be able to build a trimmed down one in about 10mins on my old core2duo. Yes, I used to, but this became over time a lot more pain than it is worth. I also used to build the spartan way with "make localmod...

Re: One month and counting without RT kernel on Arch Linux

...and in the meantime, look what just made it to the AUR: linux-rt 4.19.10 You can install a pre-built RT kernel by adding this unofficial user repository. I prefer to build stuff myself in a clean chroot rather than use third party repos whenever possible, but it is true that 4.19 RT did take a s...

Re: One month and counting without RT kernel on Arch Linux

@merlyn: thanks the precisions, I never looked too far into the stock Arch kernel. I should have made more clear that stock Arch <> vanilla, but anyway this is true for more or less any distro. ...and in the meantime, look what just made it to the AUR: linux-rt 4.19.10 https://aur.archlinux.org/pack...
