I'm not recommending to make it go at a rate above the monitor's rate. 
Usually, even a third of the monitor's rate is too much for Tk. I'm not 
100% sure what is Tk's refresh rate, I think I've seen 50 ms (20 Hz). I 
don't think it ever checks the monitor's rate.

I thought you were suggesting to use the audio block size?... anyhow, 
surely not, as it's much above the frequency of the monitor.
