I'm pretty sure Loop Windowing could be done using the Audio Table module. 
I'll look up the other functions. I don't have Reaktor 5 yet; Reaktor 4
doesn't have modules for dealing with MIDI Sysex Data, but I think they
added that in version 5. I'm pretty sure there are already modules for
sending MIDI Synch signals. I think there's one for the Start Song
message, too. I believe it responds either to the MIDI message or to 
the play button at the top of the screen.

I'll do some more research.
