Hi Atte!

> Exactly what latency (chuck only) can be expected from --bufsize128?

To my understanding and observation, it varies depending on

1. the operating system audio subsystem (CoreAudio tends to have lower 
system latency than say, DirectSound)
2. your sound card (potentially huge difference)
3. which latency you are concerned with - full-duplex audio?  or 
midi/osc/external events?  something else?

Across the various systems, buffer size of 128 (srate 44100) can 
translate to somewhere between 10-50ms of audio latency, I reckon.
