Roland announces the availability of SBX-1 Sync Box, a new universal hub that can be used to sync electronic musical instruments and computers. Roland first unveiled the SBX-1 Sync Box at Musikmesse 2014. SBX-1 Sync Box is equipped with USB-MIDI, standard MIDI, and DIN sync ports. Also features a compact SBX1 that provides a convenient way for music producers to use modern production tools and legacy analog devices together at one time.
When it comes to music, timing is fundamental. The SBX-1 keeps everything tight, syncing your analog and digital devices to your computer or as the master sync source controlling the tempo of all your devices. In addition to the SBX-1’s internal clock, you can set the master to MIDI, DIN SYNC, or USB/MIDI. Physical knobs for TEMPO and FINE tempo along with TAP tempo give deep control of the overall groove and let you freely adjust your timing to sync-up with DJs or other performers in a band.
Roland SBX-1 features:
- 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 like TR-808 and TB-303
- CV/GATE jacks introduce enormous 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 AUX jack
- Runs on USB bus power or with AC adapter
