[PD] Minimizing MIDI Latency

Hi list,

I use PD as a MIDI "pre-processor" for Ableton Live on OSX, and have done so
for several years.

Something I've always wondered about: how to minimize MIDI latency?  As far
as I can tell (though I've never done a scientific test) MIDI throughput
latency is locked with audio latency.  I've also noticed that if I disable
audio entirely that I run into strange problems.

So, since I use PD MIDI-only, I've ended up setting the audio latency to 1ms
and disabling audio outputs -- but not disabling audio entirely.

Is this more or less the standard approach?  Thanks in advance for any
