Synchronizing External Machines

Looking around the Audacity documentation and forums it looks like there’s no way to sync an external machine, like a drum machine or synthesizer, to an Audacity project. Is that accurate? There’s no way to get a time code or tempo via MIDI or USB?


Audacity does not yet support time code.

I assume that you would like it to, so I’ll move this post to the “adding features” section in case anyone else wants to comment / add their support for this feature.

Okay. Thanks Steve. That would be great. That feature would be very useful to me.


What open source software have this feature? Simple to understand software.

The digital audio workstation “Ardour” has this feature, though it is rather more complex than Audacity.
