Thanks Stephen for that code, which was very helpful. By correcting two
errors you made in the preceding code, I have now gotten the results I
wanted. It seems that the Ada realtime clock IS capable of timing those
intervals. In the lines above, Delta_Sixteenth_Note needed to be replaced
by Delta_SixtyFourth_Note and Delta_128th_Note.
Now it seems we have a viable timer.
