hi all,

i'm installing pd devel 0.38.4 on gentoo with ck-kernel (low latency) using
alsa and jack. i was wondering about 2 things : i will run pd/jack with a
very low latency buffer (64). should i turn on dither? does it change the
sound and what is the best for avoiding glitchs?

-z r means rectangular dither.
-z t means triangular dither.
-z s means shaped dither.
-z - means no dither(the default).

in the media / jack panel, we have an option called cb shceduler? i look in
the archive but found no thread on this... what is it for? should i turn it

bonus question for gentoo user: any recommandation on tuning gentoo for pd /
live / low latency stuff?

thank you for sharing knowledge!
