Disaster Area Designs Micro.Clock Tap Tempo Controller - Black
Midwood Guitar Studio is now a proud dealer of Disaster Area Designs!
From Disaster Area:
The Disaster Area micro.clock is an intelligent tap tempo and clock source for your pedalboard. Synchronize two tap-tempo compatible pedals plus control one additional device with tap tempo, MIDI, or control voltage.
- Tap the footswitch to set the master clock tempo. The micro.clock will then send taps to your devices to lock them in to your music.
- Selectable subdivisions let you tap in quarter-notes and set your devices to dotted-eighths, eight-notes, or triplets!
- Tap the knob to view or change the subdivisions or output settings for each output, then hold the knob to save the current settings to a preset.
- Hold the footswitch down to advance to the next preset. You can even set the number of accessible presets so that you only use what you need.
Each tempo preset allows you to specify a tempo in BPM or milliseconds, as well as subdivisions or toggle settings for each of the three outputs. You can also set the micro.clock to send a MIDI Program Change to an external MIDI device.
Have a pedal that needs an odd or unusual configuration for tempo control? The micro.clock works with devices that accept a normally-open or normally-closed footswitch, and can even send 0-3.3V control voltage that works with pedals with expression control of delay / tempo. Check with your pedal builder for details on their expression options!

- Two (2) isolated optical relay powered Tempo Outputs or Function Switch Outputs.

- COMPATIBILITY – TAP OUTPUTS
- The SMARTClock Gen3 is compatible with virtually every pedal or effects unit equipped with a remote tap tempo input jack. In toggle mode, the SMARTClock outputs can work as a “fixed expression” control with many devices. Please note that some devices may require the use of a TRS / stereo cable or to have the SMARTClock’s pull-up resistors enabled for certain functions.
