(Hope the original poster still finds this sync stuff useful...)
Paul does true varispeed mean fully locked all the time, not wavering up and
 down to compensate for quantization in the sample rate values?

Once, I observed this wavering effect as a 'swishing' effect in SBLive cards
 when mixing an original signal with the output.
This was done at 44100Hz to turn on SBLive's (notorious?) always-on 
 conversions to 48000Hz.
