Yes. For my own needs I can achieve the same with Bidule as I would
otherwise use maxMSP for. maxMSP is deeper for the "tweakers by
heart" while Bidule has a user interface that is faster to get going
with. I tried both but made my choice for Bidule, also because Bidule
handles time in a musical way; as tempo and note duration, while
maxMSP handles time in a technical way; as milliseconds.
I have especially found Bidule good on the PC platform as a host for
VST plug-ins. All plug-ins that have any tempo related functionality
immediately give you the option to set them either be a sync master
or the sync slave to some other plug-in. Typically I run Mobius as
the sync master plug-in VST and everything else synced to Mobius VST
by Bidule's built-in syncing system. Bidule's system is not ReWire
and not MIDI Clock... I don't know what it, but it works well.
On the Mac I don't use Bidule because the built-in sync is not
working well with AU plug-ins and the Mac LOoper I prefer, Augustus
Loop, is an AU plug-in.
