I want to sync a patch that uses the transport system to a friends computer. He is running an OSC-based sequencer that he wrote. Previously we've used a signal based solution where he was sending me a phasor ramp via SPDIF. That worked fine, but now i'm making more and more transport-based patches.
So what do you think would be the best way to do this? Should he send ticks for the transports right inlet? Or is network sync to unstable? Or keep the phasor and let me convert it to ticks on my side?
And what about MIDI beat clock? Could we send that to the transport directly? Or do we have to use rtin or something still? It would be nice if one could select "MIDI" as a clocksource for a transport. Could we?
