[PD] is bang~ limited to a 64 sample block?

usually not such a good idea: there is a reason that Pd schedules 
signals and messages at different times. sending bands within the 
signal-block will basically break this without giving you more accuracy: 
signals will be calculated in blocks. if you send a bang at sample #3 of 
your [foo~] object's perform-routine, this will be unrelated to sample#3 
of [bla~]....

there are 2 possibilities:
- use signals if you want to act at signal-rate.
- use [delay]ed bangs to keep the exact structure of the timing (though 
you get an offset, introducing a delay by at least on dsp-block)
