Part of it has a lot to do with your hardware, I suspect. How many things you
have vying for interrupts, how fast your computer is, how crappy your
soundcard is. I get all kinds of sample frame period resolution latency
frame foo foo bunny gibberish myself, and I'm on a 2.0 GHz box.

Rich did that to encourage people to fix what was wrong with their setup. You
said you have a 500 MHz box? That's what's wrong with your setup, probably.
That, and you probably have a crappy soundcard. It seems to get good results
with no troubles you need to hork up some bucks.
Dunno, sour grapes again I guess. I'm probably being a bit too pessimistic.
I managed to develop a positive attitude toward audio stuff, and I held onto
that attitude for a good while, but then I got back to my MIDI and notation
roots, and haven't been doing much with audio. It's just such an incredible
pain in the ass getting anything useful to happen. It can be done, but I
hate fooling with it, and I'm not doing so currently.
So take what Mr. Happy here is saying with some measure of salt I guess.
