Thanks for your reply. I did create a <userID.conf> file earlier but there was no improvement. I'm not sure whether I re-started the machine. I will do this again and let you know the how it goes.
I was actually suspecting "Requested 16 periods, got 8 instead" - can this be the issue?
My arm board is Alwinner A20, 1GHz, 2GB RAM etc., so it should work with these resources.

Does your ARM processor have a floating point unit (FPU) ? FluidSynth is heavily floating point based, so if you don't have hardware support for floating point, it will get pretty poor performance. Check your CPU usage and see if it is maxing out when you press that 5th key.
