For a typical jack app (like midixlate), you only have
latencies for the hardware ports. (Usually estimated by
SAMPLES_PER_PERIOD * PERIODS_PER_BUFFER / SAMPLE_RATE,
e.g. 1024*2/48000 = 42.7 ms.) I
think you get 2x that figure if you're doing both input and
output -- but it might be 1x.
There's no additional latency for the software
processing. This is the main advertisement for the JACK
API -- it adds *no* additional latency.
 That is, unless you have a complicated JACK
connection graph, or a processor that
intentionally creates delays.
