Ardour 3 very slow

I’m a linux enthusiast since 1994 and ardour user since 200x, i was so happy to hear ardour 3 was finally in alpha status that I’ve promptly tried all the alphas available and also built the svn from source - i’ve found ardour 3 to be a lot slower than its 2.8 counterpart - is it for some debug and trace functions enabled? I keep having xruns on my realtime system (no xrun at all with 2.8 even with 20 tracks recording at once).

Thanks and keep up the good work!


As was mentioned in the alpha announcements, the best place to discuss this is not the forums(In fact don’t discuss it here) and instead jump on IRC (Help>Chat) and that way some useful debugging can take place to find out why this is happening.
