Not really. I absolutely have no problems with CONFIG_PREEMPT, dynticks,
ondemand scheduler and all this fancy stuff in a vanilla 2.6.29 running
on a dualcore amd64 laptop.

It's an outdated myth that you need RT kernels for audio production,
though it helps with very low latencies. (let's say buffer sizes below
10ms and high CPU loads)

Nevertheless, for those with highest constraints or older hardware, a RT
kernel is beneficial.
