Thank you for your response (this is understandable) and of course lots
of thanks for the port and efforts for making SND better. I find very
useful the jack-SND interface because as far as I have tried, latency is
better and fewer dropout errors. This was a big issue on long soundfiles
before, not only in real time situations but also in transfers to
multitrack tapes and synchronization. I guess for the time being we just
need to start jack before a xemacs-clm session which is not a big issue
unless we are working with different sampling rates as in the jack
