[PD] So [bang~] can't "bang" in less than 64 blocksize, huh?

The same here. Perhaps it helps to see print~ as the object that gives
you one audio block as numbers rather than an 'audio rate print' that
does things faster than message timing.

This sounded strange at first to me, but it makes sense if you consider
that snapshot~'s role is to give you one audio sample from the audio
stream. Since you will only receive messages in between audio blocks the
last sample in a vector is the one that is closest (in timing) to the
point at which you receive the value in the gui.
