Eh... although onboard hardware is bad and getting worse, it should
really be possible.

Sounds like your hardware does not support those JACK settings.

First try a bigger buffer, leaving the periods set to 2.  If that fails,
go back to a small buffer and try to increase the periods.  If both of
those fail try to increase both.

Do all these tests in realtime mode.
