Custom Low Latency Kernels


#1

Hi

Has anyone tried low latency Linux kernels on roonbridge/server?

AudioLinux I know has a tweaked kernel, I was interested if anyone had tried any of the others?

Liquorix, Xanmod, Zen etc

I’ve run AL for about a year now. You’ll probably have better luck posting on Audiophilestyle.com (was computeraudiophile.com) regarding experience with other low latency builds.

Ok good call

I just switched to the low-latency kernel on Ubuntu (Linux 4.15.0-47-lowlatency #50-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT) .
The install was trivial (“sudo apt install linux-lowlatency”, then reboot). So far so good. Sound out of my DAC seems to be a bit more relaxed, with deeper bass. The UI is also definitely more responsive.
Obviously, your mileage may vary.
Cheers,
L.
