No, not at all. They only need to add a block of delay, if you use a feedback
path, which you are not as far as I see. However you have to force the order of
execution of your non-local signal connections with s~/r~ and throw~/catch~ to avoid 
delays that Pd might introduce when doing its own ordering.

Do this by adding some subpatches as described in the help file:
3.audio.examples/G05.execution.order.pd or use direct connections where

Block delays with non-local connections will only happen if you don't do order
forcing. But if you are careful, you will have zero delay.
