STEINBERG TIME-LOCK SMPTE PROCESSOR

Postby Tronic » Sat Oct 06, 2007 4:31 pm

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows what a Steinberg TimeLock SMPTE processor is used for, or has any information on it. I want to put it on Ebay but am lacking info and cannot find much on the Interweb.

I have included a picture.

Any help would be great, thanks a lot :)

It looks like an SMPTE synchronizer which allows you to sync MIDI sequencing software (in this case probably Steinberg's Cubase) to other external devices, such as a multitrack tape recorder.

The box's OUT is used to "stripe" one track of the multitrack tape with SMPTE code, then, when the tape is played back the IN of the box receives the SMPTE sync signals and starts the sequencer exactly in the right position for perfect sync with previously recorded tracks.

I don't know what the "sync" connector is for. Perhaps a DIN-sync for older Roland drum machines (TR-808 etc.)?
If it's a DIN-sync connector it should be a 5-pin DIN socket (just like MIDI). Actually, from what I can see from one of your photos it does look like a DIN-sync.

I also need to take a guess when it comes to that wide D-sub connector at the end. I suppose it goes either to the printer or modem port of the ST (I really can't tell from the photo).

The joystick port connector is probably used for additional power (+5V ?).
I know that ZIP drives used a pin to the joystick port for power, which is why I'm guessing it's the same here although I find it strange that power couldn't be provided from the modem or printer port instead.

Hope this clears up a few things even though lots of it is pure guessing.

Do you happen to still have this thing lying around? I'm somewhat interested in devices such as this.

hi you all,

someone handed me this Smpte timelocker also without a manual or anything. I have some questions:

1. Does this anything in Cubase lite?
2.Do you need -besides the use of the smpte timelocker- a dongle or anything else to use a regular vsn. of cubase, and:
3.What cubase version works with the Smpte Timelocker?
4.Does the time locker work with other software?

I hope there's someone out there with all the answers 8O

I have the Time-Lock SMPTE processor, but not the instructions that accompanied it: someone has that instruction booklet?
