I'd try AGNULA/Demudi then (*not* A/Rehmudi, which is as dead as
jMax).  It's very nice and already optimized for audio work. 

Ubuntu is nice, too, but to really get low latency going you need to
invest a bit of time. However you could install the A/Demudi kernel on
a Ubuntu system to shorten this path.
