yes. because first i missed to add my account to the pulse-rt and
pulse-access group. and i'm a member of realtime group to because i use
jack as my main audio architecture and it needs rt too to work without

joysn at joysn:~$ pulseaudio -vv --resample-method=src-sinc-best-quality --high-priority=1
core-util.c: Successfully gained nice level -15.
core-util.c: Successfully enabled SCHED_FIFO scheduling.
caps.c: dropping root rights.
