Split 3.5mm clock+run to DINSYNC/SYNC24 cable?


Has anyone found a cable which would allow the Deluge to sync an external device with a DINSYNC/SYNC24 input?

It seems the cable would need to connect a din socket to 2 x 3.5mm cables and it would be plugged into both gate 3 and gate 4.

Maybe this one?

    Yes that should work, however you need to make sure that when you want dinsync to run the run/stop line has to stay high, and you need to send clock at the rate of 24ppqn.

    Found another one, but it's more like an adapter:

    I have one DIY cable like that and it works fine with mc-202, tr-808, but tb-303 is totally out of sync. Can't really understand why. But answer to your question is that yes it should work!

    Got the one from ALM Busy Circuits and it worked great when trying on a TR-606. I just have to make sure the time signatures are the same on both devices.

    In the EU, it can be ordered from here:
    but if you pest schneidersladen, they should be able to get it as they stock other items from ALM Busy Circuits.

    The title looks like you specifically want a gate out to a DIN Sync but the description sounds like you just want clock sync from deluge to a 24 ppqn timed machine like a 303.

    I use a midi to DIN Sync converter that gets timing tight. I’m hanging a Kenton active 5 thru off my midi out to get more ports and one thru port has a Kenton Midi to DIN Sync converter plugged in and running to my RE-303. No timing issues or start/stop issues syncing with the RE-303

    You're right :). It was titled by mistake that way because clock and run come from gate 3&4, but this is specific to the Deluge.
    My goal is to avoid having to use the midi to sync module I have. Less gear to take with me ;).
