Improve your musical setup with a jitterfree MIDI masterclock and get rid of sloppy timing.
Whether you need a small & reliable clock source for your hardware gear or just want to improve the synchronisation of your DAWs:
You should always choose a midiclock!
The midiclock generates incredibly accurate MIDI Clock messages.
It has two DIN MIDI outputs to connect to your gear. The clock signal can be distributed to more than two slaves by using MIDI Thru and you can start and stop everything with a single button.
Simply attach all devices that have MIDI Clock slave capabilities: Sequencers, synthesizers, drummachines and software like 'Live' from Ableton.
How to actually set the BPM depends on the operating mode:
While using 'Live' mode, the BPM change immediately by turning the knob. You can use this mode if you want to make smooth tempo changes in your performancea and are aware, that every turn of the knob changes the BPM.
In the 'Normal' mode, the changed value must be confirmed with a single click of the knob. This mode is perfect if you want to set your tempo once and simply need a stable clock signal. Accidental turning of the knob doesn't affect your BPM.
While playback, the midiclock is always able to resync all gear on the next downbeat.
If one of your slaves gets out of sync by any reason, just push the resync button and everything is aligned again on the next stroke without stopping your performance.
Don't worry about your live performance anymore, if anything gets messed up with your slaves you are back in sync within a second.
"In practice, the midiclock worked extremely well. (...) And the resync function sets the clock deviated devices quickly back to the right path."
"Our measurements showed without any doubt that the midiclock can improve the timing of a setup to a great extent."
A lot of international artists trust in their midiclock as a masterclock generator:
Whether you are a pianist or a drummer, a director of an orchestra or a solo entertainer:
In case you need to monitor the tempo of your performance, we can add a headphone jack to your midiclock.
A sound is played on every beat according to the tempo, just like a metronome. No additional gear is needed anymore to generate a simple Click Track.
