Remember that also the ADSR timing and the pitch are derived from the bus
clock.  It'd be nice to hear how "badly tuned" an orchester consisting of
a PAL and an NTSC machine would sound.  Even if you can adjust the pitch
values, I don't think that the ADSR time values can be compensated
accurately enough.

By the way, have you considered using more than two C64s in the orchester?  
And on a related note, what happened to the "sixty-four 64s" transputer
that was supposed to be presented on the Vintage Computer Festival v3.0?
