how about using pd's [midiin] or [ctlin] objects, then filtering the
acording to http://www.borg.com/~jglatt/tech/midispec.htm

so 0xFA (250 in decimal) will be midi start, 0xFC (252) is midi stop.
0xFB (251) is midi continue.

0xF8 (248) is the midi clock signal, which gets emitted 24 times every
note by your midi master. catch this signal and use [timer] to calculate the
bpm out of it, if you want.

last but not least, there is the song pointer 0xF2 (242) which gives the
song position of your master in 16/th notes.

hope that's what you wanted to know
