[PD] MIDI on Win XP

  From what I've understood in the link I've posted in this thread, you 
have to add audio and MIDI latency, to get the result of the delay you 
get with all the sound hardware.

  One thing I didn't figured out in this topic is that if MIDI latency 
is almost about one second when audio is on, then the audio latency must 
be be nearly this high latency as well, unless the amount of MIDI 
information is huge.

  Sorry if I'm picky on importance to know exactly how far the 
informations are delayed, I've been passing a kind of war in the 
computer just to get a few milliseconds in the PD processes, by 
reviewing how the objects [trigger] and [until] are used all along the 

  Another point I've been thinking of that only concern latency and not 
MIDI nor XP, is that the player must have one meter latency (about 
1000/320) if he do play with headphones, so 3ms would be perfect.

  With OSS driver on linux the delay goes above 5ms. I've got this 
result with dividing by two the output of [timer] with the two inlet 
connected to MIDI in and out.
