[PD] Latency

Hi all
I am wondering how one can reduce the latency of PD. I have made a simple 
patch that connects some inputs on my soundcard to the outputs, and played 
piano through it. The latency seems to be at least 2-3 ms. Yet in Ardour 
when using Jack at a period size of 64, the latency is much less.

I am using the same window manager for both pieces of software and they are 
both running with low latency and pre-empt kernel patches. I have tried 
using PD's -rt flag to no avail. This is using PD's alsa support on PD 0.36.

Suggestions welcome.
