I've been wondering about this (Om will have a [jack] transport module)
- what would the ideal ports would be.. BPM?  ms/quarter note?  bar
length (in what unit?)?

Personally I use more low level things and use math plugins (to set,
say, delay time in ms) so it doesn't matter to me much, but what would
be most useful for higher level DSSI plugins that do automatic "tempo
sync" ala what some vsts seem to do?

I was thinking "ms/note" (leaving "note" up to interpretation) and
"notes/bar" perhaps?  It would be nice to come to an agreement to avoid
another V/Oct vs Hz nuisance.
