That's a vector-based approach in which the order of the innermost loops 
are exchanged : instead of having each object process one channel each and 
a big loop going through all the objects, you have a loop through the 
channels that is inside a loop over the samples (instants).

I wish Pd's DSP had that kind of multichannel support, but in terms of 
existing infrastructure, GF goes farther in that direction, even though it 
doesn't provide harly any equivalents of ~-objects beyond [+~] [*~] 
[matrix~] and such... that is, no filters that assume each grid is a 
block that continues the previous block.
