I may be asymptomatic as I run reaper with wine/wineasio/jack/linux-rt.
But I can't do (lowlatency) xrun free audio if the media files resides
on my home, I have to use a separate partition for it.  Normally mixing
about 20-30 tracks either from wavepack or wave media.  I did try all
the disk i/o schedulers, even setting reaper as realtime disk i/o class
and highest priority using ionice.  Mind you this is using rust for
media.  No idea if the problem would persist with ssd...

I do remember seeing similar issues with Ardour too.
