Have a look at the Cirrus CS2000 family of clock synthesizers. They can 
take a low frequency clock and generate a stable output at a high 
multiple of that frequency.

The bandwidth of the PLL filter is programmable. Although for many 
applications this would be set low to remove as much ripple/jitter as 
possible, when set to max it will track modulation rates up to 128Hz 
without attenuation.

I used one to generate the master clock for a digital audio system from 
an incoming Word Clock signal, multiplying a 44.1-192kHz signal by x256, 
and it worked well.
