Ya midi is there, one way or another. Most Applications that support

MMC is supposed to be real time as well. I do not know the right answer.
In my case I am making software for a midi control surface, but because
the "midi" is generated after the signals get into the computer, I am also
able to use the control surface to control jack transport directly (in
fact that was easier than sending jack MIDI). From that point of view,
having a record start would be an ideal global solution. Also, there is
some software (the non-* group stands out in my mind) that does not have
MIDI in for control purposes, but reacts to jack transport very nicely.
One of the sub projects of this software is to split the computer keyboard
so that the numeric keypad can be used as a midi/jacktransport control
surface while the rest works as the system keyboard still, so I have an
interest in a more complete jack transport from that POV. However, I am
now using either and/or as the user sees fit. One way or another it will
get done. It seems some controlers just send whatever midi note on is next
on the table for record enable. However I am less worried about that
because each key/switch can send a user set midi string/event. I will
provide some preset ideas that seem useful to me.
