Go to Config and drop the buffer length as low as you can set it without the sound stuttering. You'll need to click Apply to test this.

Renoise is worth it if you intend to make something other than chip with it as well.
It's extremely powerful, very similar to MilkyTracker [both take their UI-design from FastTracker II, so there shouldn't be too many problems], and works rather well, even on crap machines.
I had Renoise 1.9 on a 500MHz iBook, 192MB of RAM. I made a fairly complicated track, and used only about 30% CPU [uses ~3% CPU on my current 2.1GHz PC].

Also, the sampler in Renoise. Maaaan, the sampler. BEST. THING. EVER. Applying DSPs straight to samples, precise loop editor, and being generally easy to use... great stuff.
