[PD] triggering [print~] faster than every 64 samples

Hi Christof,

thanks for that, this clarifies quite a lot of things. that said it 
seems that objects like [del] and [pipe] can deal with this kind of 
situations (ie [del 1 10 samp]). the "issue" seems to appear when you 
start using "hybrid" objects (control signal to audio signal or the 
other way around). am I right assuming that?
