Elektron TM-1 Hi Speed USB MIDI Interface
The TM-1 is the first MIDI interface making use of the new Elektron Turbocharged standard. Use it with compatible gear to make slow MIDI transfers a thing of the past.
The TM-1 is the first MIDI interface making use of the new Elektron Turbocharged standard. It is a 1 in/1 out USB MIDI interface capable of increasing the MIDI bandwidth up to 10 times. It is designed with the Machinedrum and the Monomachine in mind, but it will work perfectly with any MIDI equipped gear.
Operation is driverless. Just plug the TM-1 into any USB port of your Mac or PC computer and you're ready to go.
The Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII comes bundled with a TM-1 interface at no extra cost. The increased MIDI bandwidth makes it perfect for sample transfers to and from your computer
E-RM MIDIclock Plus Hardware Sequencer Clock Generator
The midiclock⁺ is capable to sync all your MIDI Clock, DIN Sync and Modular gear without a glitch.
Configure each output function individually and control the global tempo in a range from 40-300 BPM.
Improve your musical setup with a jitterfree masterclock and get rid of sloppy timing.
Whether you need a small & reliable clock source for your hardware gear or just want to improve the synchronisation of your DAWs:
You should always choose a midiclock⁺!
The midiclock⁺ generates incredibly accurate MIDI Clock messages, DIN Sync & analog clock pulses.
It has two DIN output sockets to connect to your gear. Each of them can be configured individually to MIDI Clock, DIN Sync (sync24) or analog clock.
Clock signals can be distributed to numerous slaves by using MIDI Thru boxes, DIN Sync hubs and modular multiples.
While playback, the midiclock⁺ is always able to resync all MIDI Clock gear on the next downbeat.
If one of your slaves gets out of sync by any reason, just push the resync button and everything is aligned again on the next stroke without stopping your performance.
Don't worry about your live performance anymore, if anything gets messed up with your slaves you are back in sync within a second.
How to actually set the BPM depends on the operating mode:
While using 'Live' mode, the BPM change immediately by turning the knob. You can use this mode if you want to make smooth tempo changes in your performancea and are aware, that every turn of the knob changes the BPM.
In the 'Normal' mode, the changed value must be confirmed with a single click of the knob. This mode is perfect if you want to set your tempo once and simply need a stable clock signal. Accidental turning of the knob doesn't affect your BPM.
E-RM Multiclock USB Hardware Sequencer Clock Generator
The multiclock solves your sync issues in the studio and on stage once and for all.
Synchronisation of the multiclock to a DAW relies on a sample accurate audio clock stream, which in consequence guarantees absolutely tight clock signals with ±1 sample of jitter.
Moreover, you can use it as a standalone generator or hook it up to follow other MIDI, DIN or analog master clocks.
To compensate for any time lag of connected gear, you can shift each output channel individually and in realtime back and forth relative to the master clock.
The shift range is completely configurable and has a maximum of ±400ms, the resolution is 20µs.
If you have set your machines up to be on the spot, start playing with shuffle. Again, individually for each channel and in realtime.
Each channel can be set to either emit MIDI Clock, DIN sync (sync24) or analog clock.
Analog clock signals are configurable in polarity, start/reset behaviour and feature a flexible clock divider. An analog LFO is available with various waveforms and a range of 0-5V.
If you got them configured, channel settings can always be named and saved as a preset for later recall. Just in case you have a lot of gear.
If you want, you can have your multiclock with an extra class-compliant USB Midi Add-On.
This enables you to send any MIDI commands from a DAW to your connected slaves while syncing to audio clock.
There is one virtual MIDI output for each channel and all commands are priority-merged with the accurate clock.

World-Class Sound with Superior Apollo A/D and D/A Conversion
The original Apollo, introduced in 2012, quickly became a gold standard among modern music producers and engineers - it now counts many of the world's top artists as users. Apollo 8 improves upon the original Apollo's sound quality with completely redesigned, class-leading A/D and D/A conversion - giving you increased dynamic range and even lower THD.
Building upon a 50-year legacy of circuit design, UA engineers started with an obsessive audition of the latest converters, pairing them with completely redesigned analog circuitry. Confirmed by extensive double-blind listening tests, the end result is 3 dB better dynamic range on both A/D and D/A conversion versus the original Apollo, placing the Apollo 8 as the measurable class leader.
Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing for Tracking, Mixing and Mastering
Imagine having a classic analog studio, in single rack space. Apollo 8 lets you record through UAD Powered Plug-Ins - including vintage EQs, compressors, reverbs, tape machines and more - at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software buffer size. With award-winning UAD plug-ins from Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, Roland, SSL, Studer, and more, Apollo 8 serves up authentic analog tone and warmth. The key to its analog sound is onboard UAD-2 DUO Core DSP Processing, which powers the UAD plug-ins while reducing the strain on your host computer.
Four Mic Preamps with Unison™ Technology
Apollo 8 comes equipped with four Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track projects with colorful mic preamp sounds from Neve, API, and Universal Audio. An Apollo breakthrough, Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic preamps - including their impedance, gain stage ''sweet spots,'' and component-level circuit behaviors.
The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo's mic preamps and its onboard UAD-2 processing. Simply place a selected tube or solid state preamp plug-in on your desired mic input, and record in real time through stunning emulations like the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp plug-in, or the Neve 1073 and API 212L.
Realtime Analog Classics Plus Bundle
With the included Realtime Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, you get a whole host of professional-quality plug-ins, including legendary compressors such as the 1176SE/LN Limiting Amplifiers and Fairchild 670 Legacy, Softube's stunning Amp Room Half-Stack and Bass Amp Room 8x10 guitar and bass amp emulations, the flexible and natural-sounding RealVerb Pro reverb, UA's landmark 610-B Tube Preamp and EQ plug-in, and much more besides.

Always Record At The Right Volume
Two lights surround the input level knobs, to let you know when you're recording at the correct level. The Halo signal indicators let you know when you have a good volume for recording meaning there's no guess work and the quality of your track isn't compromised. If the Halo turns red, the signal is clipping and the gain should be reduced. The Halo momentarily turns amber as the signal corrects itself, and then back to green letting you know everything is perfect again.
Connect Your Own Speakers
Your speakers connect directly to the outputs on the back panel, meaning you can listen to your music through your standard home speakers.
