Well, my trust in USB soundcards is virtually zero. Maybe
realtime-preempt will help you, maybe the device is the limit, I dont know.
You'll have to try.

IIRC, the -multimedia kernel from DeMuDi does have some
LL patches, but that is a wild guess since I dont actually use DeMuDi.
If the -multimedia kernel does not have RP patched in, you'll
have to patch a kernel with RP yourself to see if it helps.
