This is all very interesting!
To get back to my initial problem, i managed to solve it by launching Pd
with a longer audio buffer (-audiobuf 100). For some reason Pd came with a
default buffer of 25ms.
Now, I can't tell you whether it sounds as "good" or worse than the same
audio data played in aplay. I'll need to test this further.
