it was.   but please explain more on this topic.  are you saying that
for recording, that low setting is correct, but for playback it 
be higher?  what about when overdubbing and one needs low latency
while playing back tracks and recording new tracks at the same time?

I have a Delta 1010LT.   I set it to 2048 (tried 4096 but jack would
not start) and still got glitches, though fewer.   I've got a gverb
plugin on 2 channels, both bypassed, enabling them doesn't make much
difference, except during a parameter drag it will usually glitch.
