A few weeks ago SchneidersLaden hosted a workshop for a machine HerrSchneider frequently uses in his own musical installations. This evening it was all about trusty clocks, with the SND ACME4. It can be described as an ultra-stable and versatile clock management system. It gives you a multitude of options to optimize the timing of your musical instruments while they are playing together. Four channels with different combinations of MIDI-, DIN-Sync- and analog outputs feature swing parameters, shift and much more. But the most important thing is the very reliable timing of this machine.
Tom Körting talks about his own experiences with the ACME4 and shows that a machine for clock management can be used very hands-on and that it offers some very musical performance features.
