there's a difference though: the usb 1 ms is jitter, there's no way
to reconstruct the original timing. this in contrast to midi, where 
you can extrapolate the exact event time quite well (provided you're
looking at a stream of mostly isolated events). oh well, most people
think 1 ms is below human perception limits anyway.
