What a great treat for my ears ! What a truly natural sound!


Yoshiniko AndoI am astonished by the progress the Master Clock has made over the last 15 years. It is so advanced in the feeling it gives of depth while having such “guts.” Just like an analog tape without any hiss noise or DSD – it seduced me into falling for such illusions.

Moreover, from this single clock you can connect to Protools in the TD master playback kit, the 44.1 KHz wired AD converter and even with the EXT.WORDSYNC terminal of the device called SonicStudioHD which has different frequency samplings ……Absolutely amazing!

My digital gear is dominated by TRINITY! When I thought about it afterwards, I realized that the history of my master clock purchases started with Aarvark’s AardSync, followed by Apogee’s BIG BEN and finally Antelope Audio’s TRINITY and the guy who designed each of these was Igor Levin!
