TASCAM Clock Generators

Among the glitz and glamour of new DAW systems, audio interfaces, studio microphones and all the other fun stuff, some of the workhorse devices don’t get a lot of attention. Tascam has recently announced three new clock generators, the CG-2000, CG-1800 and CG-1000 models, each was specifically designed for a particular market segment and, of course, different budgets. Equipped with high-precision internal OCXO (Oven Controlled Xtal Oscillator) clocks, each unit promises users a much more accurate clock system compared to rubidium or GPS 10MHz clocks, plus improved jitter management and glitch-free relocking. Top of the menu is the CG-2000, a video sync/master clock generator designed for broadcast and post-production facilities. Two power supplies protect the system from any power surge interruptions. The CG-1800 is aimed at post production and supports NTSC; PAL; S/P DIF for audio and HD Tri-level for video, word and AES 3/11. The CG-1000 is a master clock generator for mere recording studios, sound engineers and professional musicians in mind. Full details at www.tascam.com are hard to find, but shouldn’t be far away.
