The whole piece has been performed by sending MIDI events in real-time 
from Squeak to Cantabile (a VST host). A VST plug-in was used to record 
the performance as a WAV file (the free version of Cantabile is not able 
to do so).

In my experience, Squeak timing is excellent. This particular piece is 6 
minutes long and features about 8000 notes. I never had a single 
discernible delay during the whole composition process.

I use a priority setting of Processor timingPriority - 1 for MIDI output 

Actually I realized that Squeak can handle real-time work quite well, 
including animation, when I did my space invader game last year. Did you 
try it ? It's there:
