Tlp affect jack &or Ardour

Does using TLP have any negative affect on Jack and Ardour?


TLP Linux power management for laptops, perhaps?
Debian ‘tlp’ package, don’t know what other distros call it.

When using realtime audio software, your system should be set the most aggressive power consumption mode possible: no state changes, no frequency changes, no nothing.

Things may work with more flexible settings, but theoretically and conceptually, using them would be a mistake. You want constant CPU cycles-per-second, and no changes or interrupts that can get in the way of audio processing.

Thanks Paul. That’s pretty clear! I’ve got a Thinkpad T430 on the way to use for audio recordings. I never do recordings on battery, anyways, but good to know not to mess with it. -Josh
