Translate linear timecode for data synchronization. Transfer the readings from accessible items to the decoding module to create MIDI representation. Listen for timecode on any audio input source specified, then generate a stream without losing any content.

From the developer:
Lockstep does one thing, and does it well: translate Linear Timecode (LTC) into MIDI Timecode (MTC). Based on the same timecode-reading engine that powers QLab's LTC synchronization, Lockstep listens for timecode on any audio input you specify, then generates a stream of MIDI timecode to match. Outgoing MIDI messages are timestamped for precise timing, and are sent to Lockstep's virtual MIDI output as well as any MIDI port you choose.
