that depends. is this a MIDI-only looper, or a MIDI-driven audio

usleep (2) is the canonical high resolution sleep function on POSIX
(although nanosleep(2) is a close cousin). the resolution is limited
by the system timer interrupt frequency, which is typically either
100Hz (2.4 and older kernels) or 1kHz (2.6 kernels)
