The Disaster Area SMARTClock Gen3 is an intelligent tap tempo and clock source for your pedalboard.  Synchronize up to four separate tap-tempo pedals plus multiple MIDI-clock capable units.

 

The SMARTClock Gen3 is simple to use – just tap the footswitch and all your gear will synchronize to its internal clock.

Don’t feel like tapping in the time?  Spin the illuminated knob to set the tempo in 1.0 or 0.5 BPM increments for more precise adjustments.

Tap the knob to view or change the subdivisions or output settings for each jack, then hold the knob to save the current settings to a preset.

Hold the footswitch down to advance to the next preset.  You can even set the number of accessible presets so that you only use what you need.

Each tempo preset allows you to specify a tempo in BPM or milliseconds, as well as subdivisions or toggle settings for each of the 4 outputs.  You can also set the SMARTClock to send a MIDI Program Change to an external MIDI device.

Features
  • Blue LED display shows tempo in Beats Per Minute or milliseconds.
  • Two (2) isolated optical relay powered Tempo Outputs or Function Switch Outputs.
  • Two (2) MultiJack connectors can function as Tempo Outputs, Function Switch Outputs, Footswitch Inputs, or MIDI Outputs.
  • MIDI Clock output synchronizes all connected MIDI devices.
  • MIDI input and output with full thru and merge functionality.
  • Multi-Jack functions as tap tempo input, third Tempo Output, or additional MIDI output (requires adaptor cables.)
  • Internal DIP switches to customize each output.
  • Tap Tempo mode with selectable tap subdivisions for each output.
  • Up to 128 user-accessible presets with user-definable names.
  • Receives external MIDI clock from a computer or other device, Tempo Outputs sync to incoming clock.
  • Sends tap signals and clock from 30-300 beats per minute.
  • Available subdivisions include Quarter, Dotted Eighth, Quarter Triplet, and Eighth Notes
Compatibility – Tap Outputs

The SMARTClock Gen3 is compatible with virtually every pedal or effects unit equipped with a remote tap tempo input jack.  In toggle mode, the SMARTClock outputs can work as a “fixed expression” control with many devices.  Please note that some devices may require the use of a TRS / stereo cable or to have the SMARTClock’s pull-up resistors enabled for certain functions.
