Been working on this for awhile, only this week had a chance to record the material.
[abl_link~] (in Deken) has existed for awhile for Ableton Link sync. PlugData is more recent for Pd to run in a DAW, with timeline sync.
With both approaches, however, you'll crash into a handful of problems whose solutions are not at all obvious. This project is all about: What does it really take to have Ableton Link, or DAW timeline, sync working properly. 49 minutes a bit longer than I expected.
(This is exposing some rough edges in Pd's interfaces. Unfortunately rough edges can end up being a feedback loop -- something is hard, so people avoid it, and as a result, it remains hard and people continue to avoid it. I hope this will break the feedback loop in some crucial places and make these types of sync more approachable.)
PS Note one correction in the video's description.
