Hmmm. When was the last time you looked?

I'm not aware of anything that can block the whole of jack. Indeed, I've run a
fairly complex 12 part tune at 48k and only 16 frames/period on a poorly
optimised dual core machine, deliberately getting it to produce the occasional
Xrun to see how it recovered. It typically produces 2 inaudible ones during the
5 minute track. As far as I'm aware nothing was being blocked. It simply ran out
of time under these (frankly insane) conditions.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
