Hi Laurent,

I can't say anything about using Timidity with Ecasound
since I have no experience with that. I'm curious how it

I usually run Ecasound through Nama, a front end I've
written in Perl. Nama has an event system that periodically
executes a callback while the transport is running. It
could easily print the transport position on the console.
However, that is a whole application to learn.

You can read about it at .
