[PD] ChucK vs. Pd

PD's blocking behaviour is also configurable with the [block~] object,
so you can set the blocksize to a single sample if you like.

I think I remember reading that ChucK can operate with variable-sized
blocks as well, but I could be wrong.

While latter gives you a relief from the CPU load, it also lowers the actual control over DSP processes, so you can't exactly pinpoint a sample and translate its trigger into a non-signal domain beyond being sure that the event was triggered when the sample in question was located within the last 64-byte buffer.
