the ART Sync Gen is a simple to use and inexpensive way to improve the performance of your digital recording equipment while eliminating seemingly random pops and clicks that result from synchronization timing errors in recording systems.

A word-clock generator will centralize all of the timing of various pieces of digital equipment, reducing accumulated timing errors between the individual units that make up a digital recording chain. Designed for maximum versatility, the ART SyncGen will provide stable, sample accurate time based reference and can connect to digital audio equipment with either BNC word-clock or coaxial S/PDIF inputs.

The ART SyncGen also acts as a system tester by confirming status of BNC word-clock cables and terminations and can verify which pieces of gear are internally terminated. The ART SyncGen will also test proper cable connections to ensure total system accuracy.

What Is Jitter?
Jitter is the variation in the timing of the sample rate. Imagine calling out each second as it ticks off using the second hand of a watch. Now imagine that the watch is shaking so much that you can hardly see the precise position of the second hand. This inability to correctly read the second hand is a source of signal error.

Digital systems need to do this millions of times a second since audio samples are broken up into 64 (bit) intervals per sample (44,100 samples/sec. x 64 = 2.822 million bits/sec.) Both recording and playback jitter will create audible errors, however jitter in the recording process is a permanent part of the recording and cannot easily be corrected with standard playback gear. Therefore, the Sync Gen should become an indispensable part of the recording and archiving process when professional results are required.
