  • Tempo-sync for all Outputs is provided by the on-board Clock or an External Clock Input with Tempo ranges from 20 to 270 BPM.
  • Outputs can be set to any Clock Division or Multiple from 1/16th of a Beat to 16 Bars and can be Offset up to 360 Degrees.
  • Intuitive interface allows user-definable control over knob and parameter behavior to match the preferences of individual users.

These now ship out with the latest v.1.1 firmware pre-installed. This firmware, released in 2016, tackles many requested features, and is an impressive example of a Eurorack manufacturer listening to their users, and responding.

v.1.1 applies the following changes and features:

  • External clock resolution can now be selected from 1, 4 or 24 PPQN.
  • The ADE-32 now has two clock modes. Choose between internal clock mode where the ADE-32 runs from its own internal clock or external clock mode where the ADE-32 will not run unless a clock source is present at the external clock input.
  • Switching clock modes when no external clock is present can be used for manual stop/start control.
  • The 2 blue bar/beat LEDs reverse out to show when the ADE-32 is running under external clock.
  • Each output can now be muted individually. The blue edit LED flashes to indicate a muted state on the currently selected output.
