      Very cool Sunrat

      Tuning for optimum audio performance is a rabbithole I've found myself in many times. The best guide is https://wiki.linuxaudio.org/wiki/system_configuration A most helpful script is rtcqs (formerly Realtime Config Quick Scan) - https://codeberg.org/rtcqs/rtcqs . Run it and implement its recommendations until everything shows as [OK]. I set frequency scaling governor to Performance. For Liquorix you need to add kernel option threadirqs. I also disable mitigations with mitigations=off and disable C-states. GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet intel_idle.max_cstate=0 processor.max_cstate=1 threadirqs mitigations=off" The c-states is for Intel, and there are security implications disabling mitigations; for my Haswell CPU it can improve performance up to ~30%   What audio server do you have? I still use Pulseaudio > JACK > ALSA. Some DEs eg.GNOME now use Pipewire which I know very little about so far.   A few xruns are to be expected, mainly just when loading files or plugins. Should be minimal or zero when playing or recording. You can run specific tests for xruns with xruncounter from https://github.com/Gimmeapill/xruncounter   I think it is worth paying a few bucks to get the latest Ardour rather than the old repo version. I paid 5 bucks and have v.8.6.0 and it covers updates until v.9. The KX repo is less useful than it used to be as the devs focus mainly on their own projects and quite a few 3rd party plugins are now a version or more behind upstream. I get LSP from upstream and contribute to his Patreon. I use Qjackctl in preference to Cadence (setup of rncbc repo shown in attached guide).   I wrote a guide for setting up my system with KDE Plasma, on Intel and Nvidia hardware. Some of it may be relevant for you. File attached. bookworm-setup.txt The easiest way however to have a functioning audio production system is to use a dedicated distro. AVL-MXE is excellent; the latest version uses Enlightenment desktop which is very lean. It's based on MX which is based on Debian Bookworm.   Lotsa luck, and say hi to the rabbits!

      Well I was referring to what applications he would use for certain things and such. I don't think he is running different kernels and such but he might be. He is a computer guy and hasnt asked me any questions about linux in years but I know he still runs linuxmint.

      By all means, please do!  I'm not picky about where the knowledge comes from, only that the information is good!  I'm sure there are others who can educate me, but Sunrat is the only one I know of?!  LOL!
