I use Audacity too, a great free app. And your spreadsheet for creating
animation timings is a great idea. If I understand your spreadsheet-use
correctly, how do you ultimately output the values there into a form that
POV-ray can #read during its animation render? I assume that it would be a
simple text file-- but does the spreadsheet app automatically format its
frame-number data in the proper POV-ray-required format?

(Obviously, I'm not very familiar with spreadsheet use.)

The 'constant beat' is sometimes not so constant, ha. Especially during long
songs. (Unless the beat is generated by a drum machine or click track, for
example.) Human drummers sometimes have a tendency to ever-so-slightly slow down
or speed up-- which is probably not noticed by most listeners, but might create
minor glitches when compared to computer timings.
