You can decrease the latency by lowering the number of frames. It is now
set to 1024, try 256 or even lower. I use a setting of 64 or 128 when
using a MIDI keyboard with a softsynth or sampler.

No that's right. But it might improve performance of JACK regarding
xruns. -S means Synchronous or basically the ol' Jack1 way, some
soundcards work better that way.

Yes, the lower the latency, the lower the delay between pressing a key
and hearing the actual sound. With a frames setting of 64 at 48Khz
system latency will drop to 2.67 ms (64/48000*2). Those are the kind of
latencies you want when using a MIDI keyboard.
