Using midi clock sync (aka Sync24 over midi ;). I've got this working 
almost tolerably well with my virtual synth program although my 
486/66 doesn't really have the horsepower to run that and Cubase at 
the same time.

That's why I've put in support for tweaking sliders from my 
BassStation ;) VAZ is pretty much a virtual System 100 (not m) at the 
moment, and I'll move on to a fully modular version when that's done.
