Hi LA users,

after approx. a 20-year-break as a musician, I decided to get some MIDI
equipment and do something more fun with all these computers.

And wow it seems hard. I still remember someday when I bought my first
MIDI stuff and started with DOS - so this was pre-Cubase & Co, and
everything worked fine with some soundblaster and the Y-cable.

Now I am reading since days about low-latency, tried both the live and
the install of DeMuDi, configured an older companies' laptop (Asus with
P3-750) to make use of my MidiSport2x2, and since then I'm fuddling
around with jackd, alsa, rosegarden4, muse, and all the like.

The latencies are horrible. Ok; it's UNIX/Linux, and that is meant for
more than one person, I know, but I didn't assume it to be *that* hard.

So I'm greeting all members of this list, and since I'm obviously a
(rather old, I know) "newbie", don't kill me because of the questions I
might ask here.

Oh, andd thanks to all the authors of these great & free applications -
as well as all the others who are writing good articles about them. Life
is fun again ;-)
