Not sure how this is set in Ubuntu Studio but you can find out more about here on the arch wiki.

Ubuntu Studio has some nice, integrated controls to set up all of that. In fact, I have it set to "performance", too. This sounds more like some disk access issue, to me. Anyway, I'll be doing some tests during these days, if I find the time, changing the kernel to Liquorix, reinstalling a Rescuezilla system image with a better dual partition scheme (I have some grub problems due to the previous Windows 7 install, which apparently have been preventing me from testing another kernel), and even trying out another distros, if necessary.

Well, it's really good to know that other users are using NI stuff without any problem in Linux. I'll have to find my optimal settings/setup before reaching that stage. For now, with "vanilla" Ubuntu Studio - as I commented in the "Time Critical" thread - I have more than achieved my initial goals with Linux. Taking full advantage of Komplete 10 would be like the ice on the cake, really.

Do you know, first hand or with trusted references, that it's indeed possible to run heavy orchestral projects with many, many Kontakt instances in Linux,with a similar performace to Windows?
