Looks cool. I have lots of clock utilities, but might get it just to have a kit to build.

BTW, Shakmat I love your chess-themed names and panel designs. The diagonal shading is so appropriate and unique! Takes me back to the old chess books.

Well, he said Thonk will get them first, and maybe in a couple of weeks, so the modules would be Time Wizards indeed to have travelled back in time to now already! :)

I'm guessing this works at audio rates too? So can be used like an audio divider?

Just finished building this.

Only found out after finishing and looking through manual again that it can have two separate clocks - one for side A, one for B! :bananaguitar:
Fantastic for supporting polyrhythms, with the two possible time signatures running in parallel!

Fantastically versatile and well thought out module. Incredible value for money as well.

Four Bricks! I didn't know this was even close to available. Is there going to be a kit?

Thot I might chime in as I was relentless early in this thread.

Got a kit the day they went up on thonk. Had it built within a few days of receiving it, which is truly a testament to the thoughtful manual and documentation prepared (because it isn't out of the question for a build to sit on my bench for a month when I get frustrated with shit instructions).

Rearranged entire setup to fit TW where it made sense in my rack and have nothing but good things to say. If you have any interest in this module, but are unsure - buy it.

Great work Shak dudes

I can only agree Jalopy

I built the one pictured above as a new build for sale so only have the one at the moment, but I am going to build more of them and one will remain in my case as it is really real good fun! Combined with a PNW there's enough clock divisions for everything and a really nice balance of programmed stuff in the PNW and wiggleability in the TW.

It responds very well to audio rate modulations too, there is a cutoff at some point, but way beyond what is musical relevant, I was using Tides to drive it and sweeping the pitch on Tides gives some very interesting results - it totally rocks!!

Glad you think it pairs well with PNW as that's what I have planned for mine!

Pretty sure you won't be disappointed Mortalitydrag, the little bit of logic in it takes a few tries to work out what's going on, but once you have it the switches provide another dimension of playability too.

By the way, the module I posted photos of above has now sold, I would be delighted to make more for anyone who would like one, PM for details, or see the Thonk Kit Build Service link in my signature.
