sets all realtime process to non-realtime for 8 seconds. You will get an
xmessage window up on the screen whenever that happens.
*Let the test thread run with SCHED_FIFO priority using the

(This change has been tested quite thoroughly)
jack_capture is a program for recording soundfiles with jack. Its default
operation is to capture whatever sound is going out to your speakers into
a file. This is the program I always wanted to have for jack, but no
one made. So here it is.
Note: Anyone using 0.9.2 should upgrade to 0.9.3! 0.9.2 will most likely
hang during startup. :-(
