34one Released: Tap Tempo for any Keyboard or Sequencer

Music Hardware : 34one Released: Tap Tempo for any Keyboard or Sequencer - macmusicPloytec, a Germany based-company run by the people who brought you usb-audio.com, is about to release a new product called "34one," a battery-driven tap tempo pedal.

Synthesizers like the Korg Triton or Yamaha MOTIF / MOTIF ES offer fantastic arpeggio and live sequencing possibilities that are hard to use with a non-click synchronized live band. 34one solves this problem by providing easy-to-use tap tempo, in the form of a 9V block battery-driven pedal that generates MIDI Clock signal.

The pedal works by stamping out the 'Three Four" of a bar, thus setting a fresh MIDI clock value. The tempo range is 30 300 bpm. It can be used for songs, patterns and also arpeggios with software and hardware synthesizers and sequencers. 34one comes with an additional "tap on" function that calculates the tempo with the average value of the last four tap measurements. Plus while you tap on it slightly shifts the rhythm in the direction of the next quarter note to make it easy to stay on time.

According to the manufacturer, the device has a 9V block battery running time of over 50 hours; no energy is used when the device switched off. The 34one will be available in March for EUR 80,- (about US$ 100,-) Ed: Yeah, yeah, yeah, rub in our lousy US dollar exchange rate. This is a tremendous device -- it'll be essential for a lot of people using software synths, groove generators, looping software, and more. -PK
