If the app is the timebase slave... you just translate
the "system" transport to your simple 1/4 transport.
It's very simple to map any time signature to 1/4.

That depends on the application. If you are taking pre-made
clips and throwing them together into some kind of remix...
then truncating the pattern makes sense:

4/4: 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4
5/4: 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4
7/8: 1234567 1234567 1234567 1234567

Examples: EnergyXT, Hydrogen(?)

However, if you're an experimental sequencer pumping out
semi-random patterns based on the size and placement of
boxes on an xterm... I think overlapping patterns makes
sense:

4/4: 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4
5/4: 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5
7/8: 1234567123456712345671234567

Example: Seq24, non-sequencer(?)
