Details

Klik is a synchronisation device that enables you to make analog, rock solid sync signals from your computer and your HW synths. The KLIK revives the old-school sync technique of using an audio track for synchronisation purposes. Record your synths exactly on the grid into your DAW while compensating for the latency of your sound card. Jam really tight between your computer and your HW and add groove to your clock.

Record your synths exactly on the grid
The KLIK converts audio line level (or headphone) output signals from any sound card and makes perfect synchronisation pulses in the modular level.

KLIK converts two signals (left and right input) - typically clock and reset signal. The reset signal also has a button which you can use to re-sync your HW or use for sending manual gate signals. You can send rhythmical triggers thru the KLIK as well.

With KLIK you can use any channel of your soundcard or repurpose the unused headphone jack on your macbook by creating aggregate device. Or use an old mp3 player as a stable clock source with presets!

And as a bonus if you run any audio signal thru the KLIK to apply a harsh bitcrushing effect!

Please note it is designed to only transmit clock / trigger / gate information. Its output is either low or high 0 or 5V. It doesn't output continuous CV signals.

Features:


TRS 3.5mm stereo line level input
2 x TR 3.5mm mono outputs
0 or 5V trigger gate outputs
all jacks are overvoltage / polarity protected
Manual button gate for R / Reset channel
Led indication per channel

DAW integration:

ABLETON
There is a simple method of sending pulses from a drum machine, see Ableton project below. I am sure someone will make max for live object for this which will be even better – already talking to somebody about that.

CUBASE, LOGIC, PROTOOLS ETC.
Not tested yet – similar method to Ableton should work (download the Ableton project to get the sync samples)
