Notes: EEffortless and reliable MIDI synchronisation.… Read more
Set the tempo on your MIDI devices, modular synths, your daw and use the built-in metronome with live musicians.
At the core, the Midronome is a MIDI Master Clock, that means it will set the tempo on your MIDI gear like synths, sequencers, drum machines, Ableton, guitar pedals, etc.
Live, it will sync acoustic musicians as well with its built-in metronome in time with the sequencers.
In the studio it will solve any sync issue you might have, by syncing tightly your DAW and your outboard gear together.
It has two CV/Analog outputs for your Modular gear like Euro-racks, which can also be used a DIN (sync24) clock output for your vintage synths.
So damn easy to use
Plug 3 cables and you're ready to play. Your sequencers and drum machines will automatically start in time. Change the configuration with a few clicks directly on the device.
Tons of possibilities
Customize the Midronome so it fits your setup. Choose the click sound, the speed of your CV signal, the pedals' function, the play button behavior, even the brightness of the LEDs.
Ready for live
Big display, to stay in control on the dark stage. Large metal knob and buttons that light up. Sturdy steel metal case. Special locked Mode to prevent accidental changes.
Fast and responsive
Press a button, turn a knob, or power it up, the Midronome responds instantaneously, you will never have to wait.
Tap tempo in five ways
Turn the knob, tap the button, use a drum pad, a pedal or simply send an audio sync signal - pick what fits your setup.
Ultra stable clock
No more sync issues with a jitter-free MIDI clock. Measured jitter of under 10ns, 50000 times more precise than a computer-based MIDI Clock.
Whatever clock signal your equipment needs, Midronome has got you covered.
Send the audio click to headphones directly, or send a balanced line-level signal to your in-ears mixer.
Avoid the classic "oh no I forgot the power plug!", just get any USB cable and plug it in a phone charger, a computer, or whatever you have handy.
Pedal / drum pad input
Connect 2 pedals to control Mute, Play, or Tap Tempo. Replace one pedal with a drum pad to tap both tempo and time signature.
Sync DAW over audio
Get your software and hardware in sync with one simple audio track in your DAW. Send the signal to the Midronome's input, and your DAW will control your Midronome, both tempo and time signature at sample rate precision.
Independent MIDI ports
Start or stop your devices independently on each port, using either two buttons or two pedals. Need more ports? Connect a MIDI powered Thru box, or even add more Midronomes to expand while keeping the same remarkable precision.
Do you have a recording studio with lots of gear? Do you struggle to get your hardware in sync with the recording software?
Do you want to spice up your rock sound with a few sequencer synths, without having the hassle of a complex computer setup?
Are you a solo artist who plays many instruments on stage? Do you need a hands-free solution to sync your gear?
