I am trying to understand why I'm experiencingaudible breaks with audio. 
I'm running FC10 with a firewire card (SaffireLE). I'm running a somewhat 
complicated pd patch but, as far as I could test, each component in it 
works fine but when they're combined I sometimes get problems. I already 
tried to economise on processing in Pd (for example removing graphic 
But I also noticed that when I'm running only jack and Pd (no patch open 
and dsp off) my cpuload is still around 30%. The machine is not very old 
(1 YO thinkpad).
Any ideas where to look for more savings?
