[SOLVED] jackd frames/period & latency
I recently upgraded to 12.04 and found that with jackd latency coming out at 46mS, using my midi keyboard to play into rosegarden wasn't, in fact, very usable at all.
I found with some experimentation that I could get the latency figure down to a more usable 11mS by altering frames/period from 1024 down to 256.
Can someone give me an idea if there will be other repercussions to look out for? I seem to remember some online documentation for jackd that mentioned this, but I can't seem to find much in my searches.
I'm a guitar/bass player usually, so don't use keyboard input very often, maybe I should just change this parameter when I need to and stay at 1024 otherwise?
