SYNCHOLE is a MIDI to DIN SYNC converter It takes a single MIDI input, extracts the clock and transport messages, and generates five identical DIN SYNC (SYNC24) outputs.
Use it to synchronize classic drum machines, synths, sequencers etc which have a DIN SYNC input but which lack MIDI completely or which cannot slave to a MIDI clock.
BEFORE PURCHASING -- Be aware this outputs SYNC24 clock which is a standard mainly used on old equipment from 1980s (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DIN_sync). Newer equipment will generally synch up using MIDI. Please make sure you understand what this does before purchase!! if you want to split MIDI clock (and MIDI notes, CC etc) you need a MIDI splitter instead (See Bananasplit). Feel free to send me a message to ask any questions. Thanks!
SYNCHOLE is supplied as a fully assembled and tested unit - no assembly is required
SYNCHOLE generates standard SYNC24 signals - so it uses the incoming MIDI clock to generate a 24 pulse per quarter note (ppqn) clock (5 volt peak, 50% duty) on pin 3 of the 5-pin DIN connector. It uses the MIDI start/stop/continue messages to switch a 5V "running" signal on pin 1. Manufacturer-specific extensions on pins 5 and 4 (e.g. Fill in and Reset) are not supported.
The full spec is
The unit requires a power supply (not supplied) of between 9V and 12V via a 2.1mm barrel type connector (such as a guitar stomp box supply). Both positive tip and negative tip supplies can be used.
All connections are made from the front of the unit, allowing it to be fitted into a studio panel / flight case foam etc.
The enclosure is made of laser cut 3mm acrylic panels, with 5mm acrylic end pieces and a laser-etched acrylic front panel. Size is approx 180mm x 55mm x 28mm and weight is 175g
