ModMix

Gearbox

A compact module that converts and locks analogue, MIDI and DINSync timing clocks together. Any one source may be master and the other two follow in synchronisation.

Available in two versions: a basic 8HP module with a single 5-pin DIN socket that may be used as one input or output or a full version with manual transport control switches and a separate 6HP panel containing four DIN I/O connectors.

Any analogue signals may be used as inputs enabling slow rising waveforms to be used as jitter free controls. MIDI and DINSync sequencers and drum machines and DAWs may be controlled by analogue signals and vice versa. Analogue sequencers may be driven by MIDI or DINSync clocks and commands. Because all timing is divided down rather than multiplied up there is no sloppy timing with tempo changes.

This module was developed in response to a request on the Muffwiggler forum. The full thread discussion may be read here
