We may not be talking of the same thing. This is not about
'generic events' but about reduced-bandwidth continuous
signals, represented as floating point samples. So I'd say
that all it takes is a shorter version of the standard
_audio_ buffer.

The last paragraph in my previous post just hinted at the
possibility that even such low-bandwidth 'analog' signals
can represent discrete events with infinite timing accuracy,
and in a way that would e.g. survive operations such as
mixing or resampling.
