Advanced Clock Management Engine

The only device we know of to generate a MIDI master clock that is 100% jitter-free.

Derives a highly accurate MIDI clock from any audio recording system.

Analog 16th-note triggers can also be used as clock source.

Generates 4 separate clock streams.

Each clock stream has its individual MIDI output. 2 streams also generate 24-ppq signals (“Roland sync”), while the other 2 provide clock and reset signals for analog sequencers and arpeggiators.

Each clock stream can be time-shifted in relation to the master clock, in extremely small increments as well as in 16th-note steps. The fine shift, too, follows tempo changes.

In addition a constant fine offset can be set for each clock stream to allow compensation of technical latencies.

Each clock stream can be set to double or half tempo, and can be turned on and off without loosing synchronicity.

A swing or shuffle factor can be set individually for each clock stream. The swing pattern can be the same for all 4 streams, or it can be a different one for each. A software editor for these patterns is included.

All functions have dedicated controls, so they can be "played" without staring at a display and poking around in submenus. Calibrated center clicks on all pots allow instant nulling.

Complete settings of all controls can be stored and recalled. All parameters can be remote controlled via MIDI.

Like all SND products, the ACME-4 has been designed with great attention to detail.

The 32-bit risc-processor ensures lightning-fast reaction. High-grade components (gold-plated jacks, switches, and push-buttons, sealed Alps potentiometers etc.) and a rugged metal casing ensure decades of reliable operation.
