[linux-audio-user] Syncing Ardour + Hydrogen so Hydrogen will follow Ardour tempo change

as the subject line suggests, we've been trying to get a working/smooth
tempo change going with Ardour + Hydrogen synced to Jack. I've tried the
only way that makes sense to me - indicating the tempo changes in the
Ardour tempo strip ... Ardour is synced to Jack.

I think this approach *sort of* works, but when it comes to the tempo
change, hydrogen skips over about four of its bars before continuing. at
first, i tried just adding an extra four bars into hydrogen to make up
for the skipping, but this doesn't seem to work that well.

we just need a change from a tempo of 86bpm to 94bpm and back again ...
how do we do this in ardour? will i have to record the hydrogen tracks
into ardour at the different tempos, and then adjust the ardour tempo
track to match up? that would sort of suck ... other approaches?
