Bastl Instruments has announced a new product - the KLIK. They describe it as a synchronisation device that enables the user to make rock solid analog sync signals from their computer and hardware synths.
A spokesperson told us, "The KLIK revives the old-school sync technique of using audio tracks for synchronisation purposes. Record your synths exactly on the grid into your DAW while compensating for the latency of your sound card. Jam between your computer and your HW in a really tight sync and add groove to your clock. We have collaborated with Bitwig and Irrupt Audio to make the KLIK as powerful and easy to use as possible and are presenting this collaboration for the first time at NAMM 2017. The new version of Bitwig (2.0) adds a HW CLOCK device which we collaborated on to use with the KLIK!"
The KLIK is designed to only transmit clock / trigger information. Its output is either low or high 0 or 5V. It doesn't output continuous CV signals.
Pricing and Availability:
Price is 49 eur excluding tax (approx 59 eur including tax)
The KLIK is available for preorder at Noise.kitchen and first units will start shipping in March 2017
