When creating more than one object in 0 logical time dynamically, I'd
recommend to first turn dsp off, create the objects, turn dsp on again.
When doing this, all tilde objects are working afterwards. Also this
approach turns out to be a _lot_ faster than with dsp turned on during
creation. I suppose this because with dsp turned on, the dsp graph is
recompiled on every creation, while with dsp turned off it is only
recompiled once, when turning dsp on.

Can someone with knowledge of the C code confirm this?
