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.

Rubbish. Try using Reaper under Mac/Windows. It can even run in Linux with WINE. I record live with FX on all the time. I also record ambient room with mic (so no FX required.) Truth is, latency is your enemy, so you need the right drivers for it to work with Windows (ASIO, though ASIO4ALL will work with standard cards), but Mac handles it fine with base system drivers. Even GarageBand will record live audio with FX. But honestly, you really need a real audio card. I use a Tascam 122mk2 personally. USB. Drivers work well enough. Low latency. Sorted.
