Kenton announces the availability of its new Sync-5 Active DIN Sync Splitter as of November 8.
According to the company, since Roland popularised the DIN Sync interfacing standard — otherwise known as Sync 24 — on the likes of its classic TR-808 and TR-606 drum machines, TB-303 Bass Line, and early digital sequencers (such as the MC-4 and MC-202 MicroComposers), the Sync-5 is primarily intended for use with such suitably-equipped, pre-MIDI Roland equipment — all of which work at 24 clocks-per-quarter note. The Sync-5 can also work with appropriate Korg devices at 48 clocks-per-quarter note. It cannot convert between the two, however.
Housed in a brushed aluminum box with black screen print, the Sync-5 ships with a switch-mode PSU appropriate to the destination country — UK, EU, US, and Australian types are available, so no battery changes required. S
You plug the supplied PSU into the Sync-5 (which will illuminate its ‘active’ LED), connect the DIN Sync output port of an appropriate drum machine or sequencer to the single DIN Sync input port, and connect one or more of the DIN Sync output ports to the DIN Sync inputs of any devices to be synchronised; start the DIN Sync controlling device and connected DIN Sync devices will play along respecting the tempo, as indicated by speed of the now- flashing LED.
Pricing & Availability:
Sync-5 can be purchased directly from Kenton for £52.80 GBP (including VAT) here: www.kentonuk.com/products/items/utilities/sync-5.shtml
