Summary0002561: Make Ardour to report time and tempo to VST plugins
DescriptionVST specifications support asking host for tempo and time. It widely used for delay syncing, trance-gate syncing and for voice tuning by Melodine VST Plugin. As Ardour's VST support improved a lot, I'd like to see Ardour supporting this feature.

So functions to be implemented are: getTimeInfo and tempoAt.
For testing I found a simple metronome blinking vst plug-in.
It's called blinker and can be found here:

It seem to be made in synthedit so it creates some additional files in order to run, so I had to make /usr/local/lib/vst folder writable. So I'm able to open this VST plugin in Ardour2, but it doesn't blink. I'll put a bounty for the one who would make it blink.

that's something for the FST author, as ardour is using FST for its VST support. Try to contact the FST author and tell him about it.

It's quite some time..

This should no longer be an issue since ardour 3.5.308
