Isn't that kind of strange ? Assuming the soundcard interrupt
takes a tiny fraction of the available CPU time, it shouldn't
slow down your system even at the highest priority.

If this happens, and it does not happen with your current
(lower) setting, wouldn't that mean that 

1. it takes a more than trivial time to execute,
2. with the current setting it's still being 
   pre-empted, and not just occasianally, but
   in a systematic way.
