for more information's read here.

my question, exist something like this for alas. i am interested to send midi beat clock
signals from hydrogen to external hardware synthesisers/arpeggiators. and i am explicit
not interested to sync them to any timecode. because the external machines have to run
independent and in a randomly order. they only have to sync there beats.

here the mbc specs.
midi beat clock defines the following real time messages:
    * clock (decimal 248, hex 0xF8)
    * tick (decimal 249, hex 0xF9)
    * start (decimal 250, hex 0xFA)
    * continue (decimal 251, hex 0xFB)
    * stop (decimal 252, hex 0xFC)

and about ticks.
i fond out that linux audio apps all have other or there own definitions about the quantity of ticks per beat.
make it sense to find out an accordance about ticks per beat. or is this irrelevant for any syncing. especially i mean here syncing via jack-transport.

greetings wolke
