Linux I don't actually have a reason for trying to build a Linux kernel with the CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT patch set. There's no way I can even measure the impact of it. Still, I felt like having a "real-time" Linux box, and set out to make one. Little did I know how difficult it would be to even get started.

That statement is just silly. Have you actually used the software I just mentioned. I usually do a lot of live audio processing with very cpu intensive plugins like impulse response. On other platforms, the norm seems to be to record with a raw monitor signal, and apply effects afterwards because the system can't handle doing this without using large buffers.

I might have a play with building an FX unit using a Linux box this weekend.

I have low latency pro-audio sound card already - just wasn't sure what software to install. What would you recommend for listening to line in and applying real time effects too? (last time I did this, I just did it in Ableton Live on XP - but there was around 32ms latency which made the thing impractical)
