As far as I am aware ChucK does not deal with sysex, timing or active 
sensing. ChucK uses the RtMidi library and by default those functions 
are turned off and I can't find anywhere in the source where they are 
turned back on. Ge?

So, for syncing to another app it depends how you do that. You could 
send midi messages from  your other program and have chuck wait on 
those events. You could trigger samples or patches or events or 
whatever you want. That is the power of ChucK! Without knowing what it 
is you are trying to sync with or what you want to do, that is my first 
suggestion. Let us know how you are using ChucK :)

I hope this answers your question.
