There is 1 strange thing however : pd did some kind of buffering with midi, in order to synchronise with audio out.
if you configure 100ms audio latency, then a midi loop will be between 100 and 105ms.
with 10ms audio buffer out, the midi loop is between 10 and 15ms.
but this buffer should not change anything on timing except adding latency.
