Thats because the processing in jamin is high latency - jack itsself
doesnt add any latency, no matter how many apps you connect.

Well, actually thats not true - it will add latency if you have a jack
feedback loop, but only 1 buffers worth. With trees and chains you dont
get any additional lantecy over what the app adds.
