There was some serious investigative/experimental work done a week or two
ago. The CVS version now has two Jack drivers - the original (which is very
responsive, but zombifies easily) and a new one which is slightly slower to
respond (due to additional buffering), but which doesn't zombify. I've spent
a little bit of time looking over the code in an effort to come up with a
better implementation, but the author is currently making some big changes to
the internals of the synth, so I'd better wait until things stabilize a bit.
If you're interested, I could try sending you my slightly hacked
ZynAddSubFX binary (offlist, of course). It coughs and sputters a bit when
it gets pushed too hard, but it uses the older, more responsive Jack driver,
and I've managed to use it for a couple hours with Jack buffer size set to
64! I could send you the source code, but that might take a few days, since
I'd have to dig around in order to figure out which source tree built the
binary I put into my /usr/bin directory (assuming I still have a copy of the
source tree from which I built it.... ;)
