are you sure, that a delay is necessary? in my experience, the
determinisme of pd is absolutely reliable. i mean, when i use a [t b b]
and i use the first 'bang' to create the whole patch and the second one
the send the 'loadbang' it works perfectly.
afaik, pd rather drops the audio-processing for while than dropping a
message. at least i experienced that if i create big patches
dynamically, i get audio drop-outs.

in case i am right, this wouldn't be necessary anymore... or would it?
