As I understand, the Real Time (RT) kernel enables low latency performance.
RT kernels allow 'important' tasks to preempt less important task on a
basis, where a vanilla kernel completes the less important task first.  So
should use the RT kernel for audio work, but you don't need to set the
to the wall.  Since layering a recording is a common task the recording
compensate for the buffer size.  The easiest way to tell if your latency
are a problem is try it.

The Lunar Module Computer is an interesting study in real time programming.
The Waitlist ran the highest priority interrupt while the Executive program
every 20 milliseconds and set the Waitlist priority order.  6000 feet above
lunar surface, 6 minutes before touchdown, the yellow overrun light came
The radar antenna pointing task was causing "xruns", mission control
recognized the code and told the astronauts to continue.  Each overrun
caused the computer to reboot, the descent engine steering and throttling
tasks had top priority.
