Roland SBX-1 overview

  • 1Description

In the early days of synthesis various protocols were introduced by manufacturers for syncing their instruments and effects together. But these were often incompatible with items from other manufacturers. The AIRA SBX-1 from Roland is the perfect solution for these situations, a sync box that allows computers and electronic instruments to communicate and synchronize with each other across formats.

The unit supports an array of both analog and digital devices through DIN Sync, MIDI and USB, and any of these can be the master clock source. Or it can be designated as the master sync, controlling multiple external devices using its accurate internal clock. Hands-on control over timing and groove, and support for CV/Gate makes the AIRA SBX-1 a great addition to a hybrid music studio.

Simultaneous conversion between MIDI, DIN Sync, and USB/MIDI
Control external devices with SBX-1 as the master sync source
Shuffle adds swing to patterns generated on devices without swing, such as TR-808 and TB-303
CV/Gate jacks introduce creative possibilities
Sync button corrects timing errors with a single press
Output up to three channels of triggers or LFOs with different characteristics
DIN Sync supports both Sync24 and Sync48 compatible with a variety of rhythm machines
Works great with the TR-8 through optimized auxiliary jack
Runs on USB bus power or with AC adapter

    Roland SBX-1 reviews

    AIRA SBX-1 - Sync Box is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Made in Japan, not in China. Totally syncs my 808 to protools and allows me to use midi beat clock to sync. I love the swing feature. It's a fantastic box for any 808 owner. Very solid design, not plastic.
