google will find many.

but we've already established that you have a problem with pulse
audio. you should NOT use pulse audio and JACK together unless you
really, really know what you are doing. your problems are because you
are making JACK route audio via PulseAudio. PulseAudio is not a low
latency system, and feels entirely at ease creating seconds' worth of

many of us either remove pulseaudio, or never install it, or disable
it, or use 2 audio interfaces ("soundcards") and leave to do its thing
wth the el cheapo builtin one.
