Re: real time audio to midi sync analysis

There is a guy who is on this list sometimes named Michael Stauffer who 
has developed a tempo-sensing MIDI clock-sending software.  When he 
demo-ed it for me it was only able to use MIDI input to sense the time 
from, but he said they were working on getting it to be able to use 
audio, too. 

Their website is: http://circular-logic.com/

Good luck.
