If your midi hardware generates MMC messages, especially the "locate"
mesage, then jackctlmmc will reposition JACK transport to keep your stuff in
sync. Note that this isn't exactly the same thing as MTC, although they are
very closely related. You might want to try running jackctlmmc with the "-v"
option (verbose) on so that you can see if your device is generating
recognized MMC commands. Jackctlmmc is still young yet, but it's current
console-only incarnation seems perfect for your needs.
