At the 2017 NAMM Show, Bastl Instruments introduced the KLIK, a synchronization device that is designed to let you make rock-solid analog sync signals from your computer and hardware synths.
The KLIK revives the old-school sync technique of using audio tracks for synchronization purposes. It lets you record your synths exactly on the grid into your DAW, while compensating for the latency of your sound card. It lets you jam between your computer and your hardware, in tight sync.
The new version of Bitwig Studio (2.0) adds a HW CLOCK device that is designed to transmit clock/trigger info. Its output is either low or high 0 or 5V.
Here’s the official video intro:
Pricing and Availability
The KLIK is available for preorder at Noise.kitchen, priced at 49 Euro (plus tax). First units are expected to start shipping in March 2017.
