"Clicks are produced in 24 frames per second calibration for American and European film scoring when the VIDEO switch is off. United States models will operate in 30 frames per second calibration for video scoring when the VIDEO switch is activated. European models produce 25 per seconds calibration when the VIDEO switch is on.

Tempo in the selected calibration is set thru the three digit rotary switch assembly which indicates tens of frames, frames and 8ths of frames. Additionally, click rates of 1/16th or 1/32nd frame resolution may be specified by the +1/16 and + 1/32 switches. When either or both of these switches are active, the tempo indicated by the rotary switch assembly is augmented by these frame values.

To sync the internal metronome place all sequencers and drum machines in Play mode. All instruments will commence to play upon the beat which follows the pressing of the DOCTOR FLICK PLAY switch. To stop, press the PLAY switch again.

To synchronize to a click track on tape, activate the SYNC switch, connect the click from tape to PULSE IN, and set DOCTOR FLICK tempo controls to match tempo. PLAY switch will cue in or out on the beat as with internal sync operation, and the START switch will cue in or out immediately.

The metronome is started or stopped with the START switch. Optionally, the metronome can be started by application of a pulse of at least 0.7 Volts to the front or back panel EXT TRIG input.

Click output is available at both front and back panel OUT jacks. Loudness is set by the LEVEL control. Both outputs are low impedance and can drive headphones directly.

Sequencers and drum machines are synchronized thru their Clock or Sync inputs by connection to the appropriate DOCTOR FLICK output.

To create individual triggers from audio, connect audio source to PULSE IN jack. Connect TRIGGER to arpeggiator, gate, or individual drum trigger inputs. Adjust audio input level for compatibility. Plug all the way into the TRIGER jack to obtain rising edge triggers, half way for falling edge triggers.

This device can be switched for AC power sources from 115 to 230 Volts.

The cap of the Level-rotary is missing as well as the LED of the PLAY switch."
