[PD] Using PD in a non real-time mode?

Hi Ignacio,

this should be as simple as running PD at a very low rendering sampling 
rate and recording to a file inside PD. Then take the resulting 
soundfile and convert it to the desired target sampling rate in a sound 
editor (or with sndfile-resample, etc etc...). Make sure your rendering 
sampling rate is an even division of the target sampling rate to avoid 
interpolation noise.

Or am I wrong, and this would cause a lot of aliasing problems?
