ART SyncGen overview

  • 1Description

The SyncGen from ART is a Wordclock generator that provides a cost effective and simple way to improve the performance of a digital audio recording system. Its main strength lies in its ability to provide a centralized sample accurate time based reference, helping to eliminate the random pops and clicks that result from synchronization timing errors.

Wordclock is available via four BNC connectors in addition to two "Digital Black" S/PDIF sources on RCA coaxial connectors. The unit can also function as a system tester by confirming the status of BNC Wordclock cables and terminations and can verify which pieces of gear are internally terminated. The SyncGen will also test proper cable connections to ensure total system accuracy.

    ART SyncGen reviews

    SyncGen - Wordclock Sample Rate Generator is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from doing it's Job cheap and cheerfully. I keep this around for covering maintenance outages, portable jobs etc. Not a sexy price of gear but it certainly keeps everything in-sync and makes it all work. I don't buy that a clock will 'change your audio in an earth shaking manner', but a poor one will certainly run you aground! This works fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Box Rocks The first thing that I noticed when I set it up that it synced everything together. For me that is key. Also I got no clicks and pops as I use a tascam interface that was not as strong as I thought it was going to be by itself. Now the sound quality as well has improved.This was good for my first clock experience as it got rid of all the negative views behind whether or not a clock is needed for Jitter as well as sound quality. in closing I have three words. BUY IT NOW!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective Syncs all my digital gear perfectly. Works flawlessly with no glitches. Very easy to use. Great bang for the buck. Nothing negative to say, just a small piece of advice: the front button that changes the sample rate is a little soft to my liking, so be careful to keep the unit at bay to avoid undesired changes of sample rate during recording or performance.
