Hi Dan :)
perhaps you want to record a guitar track with less latency, because
you're using Linux effects in real-time. You might get inaudible xruns
or completely no xruns at this song position, but to play the complete
song, you perhaps need to increase the latency, to avoid xruns, or at
least to avoid audible xruns.
IMO jack latency can be a construction area all the times and it's
possible to change the latency on the fly.
For MIDI set ups latency sometimes needs to be higher than for audio
An auto-detection at least must know, what kind of optimisation is

I can imagine that it has advantages for you, to switch between those
devices, but I don't think that there's the need to switch between a
Focusrite and an integrated device on the fly.
