"A demo of my DINSYNC device.

24PPQN for Roland and others.
Sync a TB303/TR6060 to MIDI clock
Either from a DAW or hardware sequencer
Other clock outputs, e.g 48PPQN for Korg available on circuit board pads
available with top cover"


Got MIDI gear and Roland DINSYNC kit?
Or need a device that outputs multiple clock rates?
Then this device will help.
Also has a built in MIDI Thru, to pass incoming MIDI data to other synths / modules

What does it do?

Can also use pretty much any 5-7v DC 'wallwart' type power transformer. With a 2.1 mm female plug. Positive on the Tip of the plug.
Please note...There is no power adapter supplied as standard with this unit.

How do I connect it?
Connect a lead from a master MIDI units MIDI out e.g. TR707 into the MIDI IN jack of this sync unit.
Plug a lead from this units Dinsync out to Dinsync in on slave, TB303/606 etc
