Have you taken into consideration I/O latency? IIRC, ReiserFS has the worst
kind of latency. The two best FS for audio production would be EXT3 and JFS.
IMHO and experience, ReiserFS would be the last
option for these kinds of tasks (it's great for general-purpose multimedia).
There are people using them, though. Plus, I'm not sure about the new FSs.
