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 current 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 performance 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 the setup 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."
The midiclock is 50.000 times more accurate than a usual software-generated MIDI clock stream.
This makes your performance a lot tighter! Learn more in our report about jitter.
The midiclock manual is available in three languages. It gives you advice on synchronisation with MIDI clock signals and technical details about the product.
