It's all about 432Hz, the universal frequency.  That is THE truth.

Universe aside, as I've written "if it turns out to be the problem",
caps would not fail immediately.  There would be a transition time I
think.  Or then maybe not.  Got the idea manly from Tim here, although
I thought about it.

I still keep an eye on Bitwig.  Every time it happens Bitwig runs.
Might not be playing something at that time, but it runs.  I should do
a test and find something to do on Ardour/Mixbus only for the same
length of time, possibly without using any pulseaudio application at
all like firefox/Opera or vlc.  The latter would not be so easy as I'm
following lessons these days.

Fazit, there is still no conclusion.
