I'm sorry i wasn't cleat about what i didn't understand. By "this  
discussion" i mean to refer not only to IOhannes mail but the whole  

"Confusion Is Sex", they say. So i guess it's not necessarily a bad

I think so too. Hence my map example.

No not really. And Marius gave a good shot explaining that.

Marius also ends out with some explanation of the 'block' concept. I  
think that what i don't really get.

I understand that decreasing the block size will possible requirer  
more computation/logical time then there is real time enough to  
complete. And therefore that the information in a block is available  
to the program to process. Which also means that after that block has  
been processes the information is not longer available. Is that true?  
What is a block, what's in it, what properties does it have. Is a  
block a sample or is a block made out of a number (being the block  
size) of samples? And also Jamie's question: what does the 'v' stand  

I suspect there is some digital music fundamentals that I'm lacking.

Thanks for your patients, all of you.
