119 >TerminatorX renders audio blockwise. If you want to have
120         near-realtime operation you need to have really small
121         blocks. The values of these blocks can be influenced via the

123 CLASS="emphasis"

125 CLASS="EMPHASIS"
126 >buffer size</I

128 > option. The setting you select
129         actually results in a 2^x blocksize (size-setting == 8 -&#62; true
130         buffer size in bytes is 2^8=256).</P
131 ><P
132 >The problem is the smaller the value you select is the
133         faster your machine has to be. So if you here "clicks", or
134         "drops" in audio output that are not related to your
135         sample-material you will have to increase the buffer size. On
136         the other hand if you believe terminatorX does not react fast
137         enough you have to decrease this parameter. The default value is
138         8, but as my machine handles 7 nicely (running with root
139         privileges for realtime scheduling) I use 7.</P
