Is it OK to fire off usbMIDI commands as fast at the teensy will allow it?

I did a simple program reading a few inputs and sending the appropriate usbMIDI commands, but I noticed that sometimes the synth I was controlling would totally miss commands (like a noteOn for example). So I added a delay(1) in my loop and now it doesn't miss any commands.

I'm just using AmSynth under Ubuntu to test.. so I'm wondering if this is an issue with AmSynth not being able to read fast enough, or a data rate I'm exceeding with the teensy, or something else?
