You don't need to reduce the block size  to get precise timing. [metro],
[delay], [timer], [vline~], [vsnapshot~ ] and probably others work as
precise as it can get without adjusting the block size. However, there
are many tilde object classes that accept messages and many of those
classes evaluate the incoming message only at block boundaries. For
instance, you cannot use the precise timing from [metro] to trigger
[tabwrite~ ] precisely, since [tabwrite~ ] will only ever start graphing
at a block boundary.
