The MC-3 SMART CLOCK offers 7 basis low-jitter Word Clocks from 32.0kHz up to 192.0kHz, which are then independently distributed to four clock output pairs with multipliers of x1, x2 and x4 for a maximum clock rate of 768.0kHz.
For the synchronization of older digidesign ProTools™ systems, the respective Word Clock frequencies can be transferred as Word Clock x 256 (also called Super Clock). AES/EBU and S/PDIF (optical + coaxial) blank frame sync signals are available from 32.0kHz up to 192.0kHz. Every Word Clock output pair as well as the AES/EBU and S/PDIF outputs can be set to a different clock rate, based on one common clock frequency. Therefore, new devices with higher clock rates may be integrated into an existing studio set-up without difficulty. It is also possible to supply various workstations in the same room with different clock rates.
