### Re: Shakmat Time Wizard - The ULTIMATE clock divider/multiplier?

i just got this, and i was surprised seeing this behave so different to my g8.
So i learned about mathematical vs. musical dividers.
So this seems to be mathematical. Right? Am i overseeing some hidden function here?

edit: on the other side, if i put a reset on the "and" of the beat i get a musical divider.. ain´t that right?

edit2: very strange. i clock my time wizard with my machine drum. when i hit stop and than play, the time wizard decides every time again how to divide..

lets say i divide by 2:
some times its like this (bold is what is coming out, numbers are incoming clock):
1 - 2 - 3 - 4

and sometimes its like this:
1 - 2 - 3 - 4

how can that be?

Just to clarify, the time wizard has musical and not mathematical division... i have a different Problem I have to understand here:-).

I assembled Time Wizard yesterday and it is so good.
Build is rather easy and well documented, didn't take me long at all.
I have gotten so many hours of house and techno grooves out of it already.
Will definitely be buying something else from Shakmat in the future.

I learned about the Time Wizard today, and as someone was selling one used for a mere \$100, I jumped on it. I had been waiting around for a white panel Dnipro Dot to show up for sale for months, and as I bought a white panel Metamorph sequencer just last week, my need for a clock modulator with capabilities beyond the basic division and multiplication became much more pressing.

The more I read about the Time Wizard, it looks like it may suit my needs far better than a Dot (not that comparing the two modules is strictly apples to apples).

I have one recently and am very very happy about it's wizardness. When I accidental put it in with the jumper on for gates on the last B5/B6 - I found out why... when switching that A2 Logic mode and found that my hihats were only playing every fourth bar... - I yelled at it! " calling it a time wizard!" - it just kept the same rhythm. I apologized and said "you just keep that rhythm you ole time wizard and I'll listen to your magic".

Rebel Technology CLK as the clock source for the Time Wizard, then two outputs from Time Wizard into the Dnipro Metamorph and the fun begins...
