DIN SYNC splitter

Post by FrankenZappa » Tue Oct 11, 2011 11:23 pm

I find myself in need of something to split a din sync signal for my x0x's. What are your favorite devices to accomplish this task?

I built my own:

Not that difficult, really. I bothered to make terminals inside for each side of the leads, but that only takes a little more time. Passive split works just fine, even under battery power.
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.

Cool! I didn't know that a passive split worked. Thx for the knowledge :D

I like that idea of using a switched 1/4 inch jack to override the clock. If you were trying to actually sync with that though, you'd constantly be dealing with 24X your intended frequency for crotchet lengths.
