"""The loop for all things GUI and controlling the GUI (e.g. by a control midi in port)
By default use fastConnect.
0 ms means "if there is time". 10ms-20ms is smooth. 100ms is still ok.
Influences everything. Control Midi In Latency, playback cursor scrolling smoothnes etc.
But not realtime. This is not the realtime loop. Converting midi into instrument sounds
or playing back sequenced midi data is not handled by this loop at all.
Creating a non-qt class for the loop is an abstraction layer that enables the engine to
work without modification for non-gui situations. In this case it will use its own loop,
like python async etc.
A qt event loop needs the qt-app started. Otherwise it will not run.
We init the event loop outside of main but call start from the mainWindow.
