If you'd ever tried that you'd know that audio triggering won't give
sample accurate results.
In fact, you'd very quickly realize that it's not at all easy to
trigger accurately from audio.

Sorry, that's really misleading.
If the processor was running just one thread, and that was the only
then I guess the figure's right, but there's actually a whole bunch
and the one for Midi is going to be way down the priority order.
...and of course, MIDI's much slower than that.
Check out the MIdi specifications, and how MIDI works
...and you'll see.
