I've edited that file but it does not seem to have any effect on Jack. After reboot it still defaults to 128.

Ok, 64stidio told me where is the file to editing ffor change the buffer.
is located:
/etc/init.d/mediastation-bin

Inside the file, look at this string setting:
ACKD_OPTIONS="-t 4999 -s -R -m -d alsa -d hw:0 -p 128 -n 2 -r 44100"

128 is the current buffer, try to edit with the resolution that you need to test and let me know if is working better.
( backup the file before made disaster.. )

Also finally is come out the new Wine 1.2!
I will test soon and if is working wil be available on the ISO

Ohhh baby.... YEAH...!!!!
I'm sure all it needs is a tiny tweak and I bet things will run way better for me. 256 will likely be the magic number.

Lovley stuff...!!! This is great news because at the moment I have to be slow at doing things to give the system time and I don't change between VSTI's in the same ASIO for fear of the audio getting cut off. Between v1.2 and being able to adjust the audio buffers I should be laughing soon. It's just a hairs breath away from being perfect and I have a feeling that this update and the buffer tweak will be the answer.

Thanks for the great work.

Cheers
James.

First test with the audio buffer.
Christian ( my main OS developer and sampler developer) have also made the Linuxsampler VSTi and they get some of this issue too under windows.
Seem like a lot of VST are running better if the buffer is more high, but then of course will have more latency.

If you look also the Reaper on they home page shoots, they setup normally to 256 or 512 frame buffer, but you can see that the basic latency is from 7 to 22ms! ( incredible...)


Just install reaper on your MS, open with Wine, configure the midi ports and then llok at the TOP right windows, like this original one under Windows.
Let me know what our system report as latency...
I really dont know how they can use one application with 22ms of latency..
Poor shame Windows OS...

Typical latency in Windows with an ASIO driver is 3ms with buffer set at 256, (Assuming youre using a quality sound card) and as the average hardware board latency is 2ms, (All digital keyboards have latency) then going for ridiculously low latency is just a waste of CPU power. (Tests have shown that 5ms is inaudible to the human ear)

yes, abacus but with linux is possible to have a very lower latency with a normal PC soundcard and not high tech soundcard.

if you use high tech soundcard with linux then windows can only dream.

leave all other things where linux is stronger then windows behind and see only this. pity, they must even start with linux education at schools,

because the only OS that has much to offer, and it's free too.
