"Fast" and "Slower" are very relative. Any modern computer system, even 32 
bits, is lightning fast compared to what we used to work with say 5 or 10 or 20 
years ago.

Not so long ago I had an old Atari ST computer ( 8 MHz Motorola m68000 cpu ). 
But it still functioned perfectly for MIDI, with minimal latency problems. In 
fact I have never had such reliable MIDI performance on my current Linux 
system. But then one day tried to convert a little song in WAV format to MP3. 
After running 12 hours continuously my MP3 file was ready :-) LOL !!
