You can use a power supply with an output voltage between 9V and 12V DC, 200mA and any polarity. The socket is a 2.1mm BOSS style type.

Sure, the multiclock can be a masterclock generator on it’s own.

The multiclock has a powerful built-in MIDI mapper and merger. There are four USB MIDI ports available – one for each physical output port – which are merged internally with the accurate clock streams.

On top of that there is a MIDI Mapper, which allows you to map MIDI data from the physical DIN MIDI input to the outputs as well. With the Mapper, you can even substitute channel numbers and send commands to ports at once.

If your DAW does not support our plugin, you can create a sync loop with the sample we provide. You can for example load it into a sampler and trigger it 24 times per quarter note. You can find a working MIDI clip here. If you want to use any other clock master – for example your tape machine – just record the output of the plugin / the sync sample to one of the tracks.

Under OSX, the MIDI interface of the multiclock is multi client capable by default. For Windows, there is a driver, you can download it here:

Sure, just configure the output of the multiclock plugin as an External Audio Effect to exclude it from the soloing behavior.

Each channel has it’s own start/stop button. When the system is running, you can stop each channel any time and start them again in sync with the selected time signature.

Every channel can be configured individually to have MIDI, DIN Sync, Modular or Analog format.

Channel 1 on the multiclock has a 1/4″ jack and can be used with a standard insert/Y cable to route clock and run/start signals to your system. For the other three channels you need a DIN socket to jack splitter, which we supply in the form of the modular whip.

The multiclock improves the timing of all instruments which are clocked by it. Nevertheless, you can not manipulate notes that you send from your DAW to your synths through the multiclock MIDI Interface. Keep your sequences in the internal sequencers of your external instruments or sequencers for tight lines!
