@padenot thanks for your comments.

(For the fun story, I was a professional drummer in a previous life, 
dabbled with controlling early versions of Live and NI software with a
 drumKAT and experienced sub 20ms issues first hand when studios moved
 from analog to digital recording.)

To give you a bit more context, there are security concerns about 
providing > 60 Hz frequency and even if we managed to work around 
this, there are perf concerns around providing the data samples faster
 than the animation frame rate.

If this is a concern for some use cases, I'd like to hear about it, to
 see if those are use cases we want to fight for or knowingly exclude.
