now that you understand the difference?

you can do that and whatever you may want as a part of a linguist
translation :)

the "forward" feature will clone or replicate all connections made to a
designated socket to the one which is set (forward connections). eg. found
useful to automagically replicate (forward) all connections from main
playback to monitor, cue or headphones.

in patchbay parlance you can only forward writable / input sockets.

easy: time code format is hour:minute:second; bbt format is bar.beat.tick
relative to tempo (bpm).

alas, you can always ask me for the tiny bits. i'm sure you'll be quick on
that, 'coz i've been taking half a decade to put up some kind of
documentation myself and haven't succeeded to date ;)

you know the rule: i'm faster breaking my code than saving any
documentation from immediate obsolescence. :))
