... well pd's dsp chain gets resorted whenever you add a dsp object ...
but that's probably not the problem, creating the clicks ...
from the benchmarks i made, i suppose that the creation of the object
will take much longer than the actual sorting ...
so it might be possible that one can create the object / sort the dsp
chain in a helper thread and replace the old dsp chain with a new one
... (i will look into that one day, but not tomorrow)

still, what you can do is trying thomas grill's dyn~ ... iirc he could
reduce click at dynamic object generation, but i'm not sure, how far he
got ...

cheers ... tim
