Perhaps just good luck. For my old Envy24 sound card MIDI jitter

I never made MIDI recordings since I own a RME card.
FWIW ALSA MIDI sequencer timer was hrtimer and tickless was enabled by

For soft synth I never noticed serious issues, at least not for my
production Linux, even if I used 'seq' instead of a2jmidid.
FWIW mobo ASUS M2A-VM HDMI, without the HDMI thingy , but instead a

24/96, PCI. I won't refer to ascertained measurement results, they might
be wrong, but others and I heard "improper timing" before and steady
timing when using -Xalsarawmidi.
