Hi again,

Frank(ly), there is still something unclear to me. Please see below.

I understand you mean "Pd has two times", the first one being the 
sub-samply accuracy of clock-delayed objects like [delay].
(I exclude metro from this group since it has the hard-coded limit of 
integer msec values).
What would be the other "timing" then?

Thanks! have a nice one,
