Tuxguitar lag and sound problems
I'm running timidity with a soundfont with tuxguitar. Even without timidity or the soundfont, I get terrible lag. Tuxguitar is unable to keep a steady beat. I have compared with a metronome. Obviously, for music software this is problematic...
I have tried tux guitar on three different systems, and they all experience this issue, including systems with the real time kernel installed.
Any ideas? Is this just another case of java not working for real time applications? (ie, it's deciding to garbage collect right when I don't want it to?)
vlc works great, no lag. I have not noticed any issues with any other sound producing applications on my system.
If this requires a source code fix, I would potentially be interested in making a donation to you for your time if you can make this fix.
