Number keys work with [key], however then they are ASCII value, which 
you would have to translate (maybe via a lookup to a [textfile] or [col] 
object) to their actual names.

Bigger buffer/latency perhaps, but the best way is to separate the GEM 
and the audio threads by running two instances of Pd, one with -noaudio 
for GEM and the other for audio, and then use OSC or netsend/netreceive 
to communicate between the two running instances. A shell script of some 
kind would be best to start both instances with the proper patches.
