This means that Zyn could not complete its calculations in the amount of
time that JACK allotted for it. (I.e. it couldn't keep up.)

This is a flaw in Zyn. Knowing something about Zyn's development -- this
is a long-standing issue that several folks are working on and there is no
easy fix. However, there has been a recent "preview" of Zyn released and
it is much improved. (Search the LAD archives.)

There's several ways you can try to manage it until it gets fixed:

1. Use the most recent, development version of Zyn.

2. Increase your latency. 5-20 ms is considered sane.
Humans are usually unable to discern a latency
less than 20 ms.

3. Start jackd with the --nozombies option. (man 1 jackd)

4. If using ALSA and JACK, use the --softmode option with
the ALSA driver.

HTH,
Gabriel
