Wrong sound card number in "Playing nice with ALSA"?

Is the sound card used in the section https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/JACK_Audio_Connection_Kit#Playing_nice_with_ALSA supposed to use...

ctl.mixer0 {
    type hw
    card 0
}

...instead of

ctl.mixer0 {
    type hw
    card 1
}

I've tried both in my system and I don't notice anything changing because of it. I've left mine at "card 0" because that's my default sound card.

Misleading script using schedtool for non-audio processes

I would just remove the examples setting up realtime scheduling of GUI application.

If JACK is running with higher priority, the whole chain of audio processes will have the same priority.

The script suggests that elevating GUI application priorities with schedtool will increase the priority of their audio processes, but in fact this is *not* necessary.

What will happen is that the user will increase the priority of non-audio processes (GUI etc), which will have the same priority of the audio processes. It makes things "worse" because you are decreasing the relative priority of the audio processes when you increase priorities of several non-audio processes.

It is just a misleading procedure as far as I'm concerned: the reader will understand something different then what he/she is actually doing. —This unsigned comment is by Smoge (talk) 12:09, 11 June 2015‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
