There can be lots of reasons for dropouts, so system tuning may get you
enough to make that machine workable, albeit with high latency. Lots of
info scattered about on that.
As a point of comparison, I can run Cakewalk/W2K on an old 300Mhz IBM
Thinkpad 600E. With 6 stereo tracks and a few effects plugins, latency is
around 150 ms and CPU usage is around 35%. Very smooth. Seems like our
Linux audio boxes should be able to make do without dual processors.
