Usually there are options regarding this in the software. I would think you could drop frames when ahead and use your slick varispeed to catch up when behind or just use varispeed for both. This kind of compensating would be the most tape-like in behavior and the easiest to make minute adjustments with I think.

A comment from Dawhead would be nice as he is the one here to most recently implement a really slick software sync. Most of us haven't done that since....well, ever.
