I just took it as a cheap excuse to do some more propaganda, sorry. ;)

Not Pd. (Or AMS,...) Those modular systems are very optimized tools,
which have no real speed disadvantage compared to directly compiled
applications. There is a little bit of overhead, but nothing to worry
about in almost all realworld scenarios. Pd even can use plain C as
scripting language which is compiled on-the-fly using Kjetil's k_cext
external, but I admit, that's a bit exotic (though it actually works).
