One potential advantage to doing it in csound is that it is also very
easy to adjust for different latencies between various synths. What we
did was store different delay latencies in a table, then the midi parser
instrument looks up the appropriate delay, and delays ouput accordingly.
As far as I know, doing real time timing in python is not very accurate.
This also puts the midi parsing in the csound process, meaning that if
you are using --sched with csound, you don't have to worry about
preempting your midi input/output. Of course if you want that to be the
case, then it doesn't work.
