E-RM Multiclock Lets You Sync Everything


At Superbooth 16, we talked with Max of E-RM about their Multiclock – a professional sync device.

The Multiclock lets you sync all types of clocks – analog, DIN, MIDI, audio, DAW – across four channels, and gives you per-channel control over clock timing and swing.

Here’s a video demo:

Synchronisation of the multiclock to a DAW relies on a sample accurate audio clock stream, which guarantees tight clock signals with ±1 sample of jitter.

Each channel can be set to either emit MIDI Clock, DIN sync (sync24) or analog clock.

Analog clock signals are configurable in polarity, start/reset behavior and feature a flexible clock divider. An analog LFO is available with various waveforms and a range of 0-5V.

See the E-RM site for details.

  1. • You can also use a percussive sound at 24 ppq or ananalog LFO as the master clock. Please make sure that the positive pulse width is at least 1.5 ms, don’t exceed 300 BPM.

    AWESOME. That is the way to control the master PPQN rhythm, totally awesome.
    I’ve got a SBX-10 and the clock input (analog) has a pretty hard time interpreting the input signal.. (unstable)

    Looks like a good way to sync from a DAW (other than available choices; Sync Gen?)
    also incorporates the Shuffle+Shift, which is familiar on the SMD ACME-4…

  2. It is a great product but doesn’t work with Logic. I asked them for instructions on how to get it to work with Logic but there was no response 🙁

    1. Hey Jacob, works fine with Logic here. You might wanna try the new plugin version and new firmware, maybe that helps with your problem.

      1. How are you bypassing Logic’s automatic delay compensation? I was using my friend’s unit with updated firmware and the latest plugin on Logic 9. Thanks!

  3. I own one and it’s a killer product.
    Easy to use. Stable and sturdy. Plus pretty good looking.
    It became the center of my world

  4. Are there any competing products?

    I’ve been toying with the idea of buying a master clock for all my modern, vintage analog, MIDI, and DIN synths, sequencers, and drum machines, ideally independent of a computer, but I have no idea what options are available..

    1. SND ACME-4 is a worthy competition. I own one myself, and it has variable shuffle patterns, but I dont exactly like its off-computer behaviour… Would love to make a video someday, but still couldnt find time.
