I'm looking to build a plug-in that reads LTC timecode form the audio line-in on a Mac. The plug-in would turn it into SMPTE timecode. The user would press a keystroke and the timecode would display in field.
Does an external program on the Mac that listens for the LTC timecode and coverts to SMPTE need to be created first or can a FM Plug-in do all of this for me? Can FM hook into Xcode's Core Audio Framework?
