in the meantime i tried around and succeeded to get it running, even
multi-channel. I'm using the native RME ASIO driver.
It's very sensible, though. Playing around with the parameters (changing the
buffer-size during operation etc.) occasionally resulted in bluescreens,
which is normally rare under XP.

Yes and no... it's the I/O buffer size that you select... the portaudio
library used by PD imposes some more latency.

I measured it with the latency.pd patch provided with the newer pd versions.
It gives me 33 ms at 48 kHz/256 samples buffer size.
