The libraries don't have to be free. They have to be in a format
understood by free software. LinuxSampler understands several such
library formats, and is an extremely, extremely efficient sample
playback engine. It can do more than almost any commercial sample
playback software on the same hardware.

tempo/meter changes have nothing whatsoever to do with sync to video.
