it's working fine now...
I'll try to use a common clock later, but for now it's sufficient like
this. I's playing music for over an hour without recognizable dropouts...
Ideas how to test for asynchronity (audioble effects?) and how strong
they become? I used 0.1 ms bursts of 10kHz sines and also short swept
sines. At least there were recognizable effects like distorted
localization of sounds.
To have a block wise sync I planned to use a microphone and measure
roundtrip latency before starting my patches.
