I say for the most part meaning before lots of other plugins get added for mixing a stereo master. Loading my test song which has 12 softsynths plus 54 additional FX (all Windows VST/VSTi) across 25 tracks, and it can't play without artifacts at 128 samples.

Doing tracking on a new song however should be no problem at 128 samples, and I can easily run like that until a song gets really loaded up.

I did also install the distro version of the low latency kernel issuing a "sudo apt-get install linux-lowlatency". Can't say that I see any difference good or bad so far, but it didn't break anything so I'm leaving it for now.
