View Full Version : Switching to low latency kernel

February 25th, 2016, 05:20 PM
I do some recording with Ubuntu, which requires a low latency kernel for recording HD audio is real time. I am currently using Ubuntu Studio, as it is easily the best recording centric distro out there. However and as always, I am not perfectly satisfied with the way things are set up. I am no stranger when it comes to spinning up my own personal distros and am looking to do the same for recording. In this case I simply want to strip down a 14.04 installation and go from there. My big question is, how can I replace the stock kernel with an existing low latency kernel?

You install it and then boot it. :)

Simple, is it not? All of Ubuntu Studio, including the low latency kernel, is in the repositories.

But Ubuntu Studio is pretty customizable. I'm sure you can get it set up the way you want rather than go through the task of starting "from scratch."

Anyway, good luck.
