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.
