Re: On the progress of compiling a laptop-based (looping) setup

20ms is no longer typical - laving aside the non- realtime os discussion 
a few weeks ago 3-6ms is very achievable
on today's systems as well as impeccable sound quality. These figures are 
very acceptable to me. I love looking for and trying out
new vsts - it's fun! and I particularly like being able to add, say a 
compressor without adding any weight to my rig.
A word of warning though - try not to use your laptop on the net - there's 
so much crap out there - keep it clean and minimal..
