 A good starting point for optimizing your system for real-time audio on GNU/Linux, is the QuickScan script below (as a newbie you might want to ignore the hardware timers settings first). A good starting point for optimizing your system for real-time audio on GNU/Linux, is the QuickScan script below (as a newbie you might want to ignore the hardware timers settings first).
  
-After adjusting your system using the recommendations of the QuickScan and with JACK (QjackCtl) and a2jmidid installed, the basics should be there for a good performing real-time audio system (depending on your hardware too of course). ​+After adjusting your system using the recommendations of the QuickScan and with JACK (QjackCtl) and a2jmidid installed, the basics should be there for a well performing real-time audio system (depending on your hardware too of course). ​

 Some MIDI sequencers or DAWs that rely on ALSA MIDI might benefit from being able to use hardware timers like the [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Real-time_clock|real-time clock]] (''/​dev/​rtc''​) or the [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​High_Precision_Event_Timer|High Precision Event Timer]] (''/​dev/​hpet''​).
