My observation with similar setups (Pd on Ubuntu) is that CPU scaling
doesn't react fast enough for Pd. When doing live music with lots of
synthesizer patches, I often see the CPU stuck at the lowest frequency,
although drop-outs occur. In performance situation I usually set the CPU
frequency manually to the maximum value.  My guess is, that even if
doesn't help now, it might help you later, once you fixed your current
