Make Noise TEMPI is a 6 CHannel, polyphonic time-shifting clock module.
It provides an intuitive method for creation and recall of complex clocking arrangements within a modular synthesizer system. Using HUMAN and/ or MACHINE programming you could re-create most classic Clock Divider and Multiplier arrangements and then continue on to create new ones. Store up to 64 for later recall and Select them using control signals from within your system or the Select Bus.
6 simultaneously programmable and patchable clocks
HUMAN programming is fast and intuitive, MACHINE programming provides effortless precision
Program clock Multiplier or Divisor, Phase, MUTE and MOD
Integer and Non-Integer Multiplier, Divisor and Phase remove the shackles of traditional clocking modules
Clock MOD allows for CHannel SHIFTing or RUN/ STOP behaviors
All programming done real-time and able to be Stored as a STATE for later Recall
Stores 64 STATES in 4 Banks of 16
Voltage controlled STATE Selection
External TEMPO IN remembers last STOREd TEMPO
Highly Stable, Low Jitter Clocking algorithm
Maximum artist controlled musical variation, minimum data input
- Pairs well with Rene
- Width: 10hp
- Max Depth: 24mm
46mA @ +12V
0mA @ -12V
TEMPI is deep, but all you really need to know: patch a clock to the Leading Tempo Input and tap any Channel Button at a clock rate of your choice. The Channel Button's LEDs flash to indicate the current clock rate, which changes in speed to match your taps. A clock of that Tempo is available at each of the respective Channel Outputs. Adjusting the (6) tempi relative to one another will create seemingly-infinite rhythmic variations on the theme that is your patch.
There are two methods of Programming TEMPI's Channels:
[Tap] the Channel Button(s) at the rate you would like the associated Channel Output(s) to move. (by default, Channel 1's Button sets the Leading Tempo, while other channels set divisions or multiples.)
[Hold] PGM_A for DIVISIONS (÷) or PGM_B for MULTIPLES (*) and [tap] the associated Channel Button the number of time corresponding to the desired DIVISION (÷) or MULTIPLE (*).
Once a Channel is Programmed, whether by HUMAN or MACHINE, it may be Fine-tuned by [holding] the associated Channel Button and tapping PGM_A to slow down the clock incrementally or PGM_B to speed it up incrementally.
