Well that is my question, sorry I should have clarified I am just now 
getting into realtime programming so this might be a really stupid 
question anyways.  If  you dont have the GUI thread(s) running at a high 
priority, would that affect the overall response of the program? 
Primarily I am looking at for triggering sound effects samples(Of 
varying size) for live performance, thus I would need to make sure 
response to the gui is also quick and that latency is not added in from 
the time of hitting a "go" on screen.

Of course it might be very possible I am misunderstanding basic 
principles behind realtime programming at any rate so please feel free 
to just tell me Im stupid;)
