I asked CED, and this is their answer:
"There aren't any timing problems with any of the Windows or Mac
platforms the latter being harder to fight for real time activity. 
Because we do everything inside the 1401 we circumvent any interrupt 
periods of the computer by buffering data in the 1401 if necessary at
all. I would say that 2000 was probably better in terms of speed 
because of the threading we use".
