Oh, nearly forgot!

if you try the stuff in my previous post and you succeed in getting your 
soundcard set up with an interrupt of its own, then you can assign a 
realtime priority to that interrupt:

	chrt -f -p 97 `pidof IRQ-4`

assuming IRQ-4 is the interrupt of your soundcard: get this from
cat /proc/interrupts;  on my system, ice1712 sound:

   4:        962    XT-PIC-XT        ICE1712

if you do this on your current setup the usb3 port will also get the 
high rt priority which is not good.
you can set the rt priority as high as 99, but i found that this
made my box sluggish and unresponsive ( but not the soundcard!).

again, i hope this helps, G.
