    Hello everyone! Does anyone here use Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen?
    Want to know about latency, installation and ect. Or should I choose another audio interface?

    I'm using a Behringer UMC202 HD on Ubuntu 21.10. It works great, and I suspect Scarlett has a similar experience.

    No hardware drivers are needed. I've installed qjackctl, and use it to start the Jack server before running ToneLib GFX.

    You can set the buffering in QjackCtl. I'm able to go down to 64 frames/period and 2 periods/buffer. It says this gives a latency of 2.9 msec, and the sound is instant. At 256 frames I'm getting a tiny but noticeable delay in the sound.
