"WOW!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This box is AWESOME! There was an immediate, noticeable improvement in my tracks right outa the box! I had no idea how important a good clock is to the quality of the audio.I have more depth, width, and detail. I don't even have a lot of digital gear. I just hooked the Micro Clock up to my digital mixer, and that's it! I HIGHLY recommend purchasing this product!

"Using Apollo 8 mkii - Noticable"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This was a noticeable upgrade. I could hear the high end details better, and everything I listened to sounds a tiny bit "more real"... I wouldn't say it was night and day, but I'd also say the UAD clock is pretty darn good to begin with!Everything just sounds stronger and more "confident". The imaging didn't change much... The "center channel" feels stronger.. especially with high frequencies... It seems a tiny bit clearer and more aticulate but not more harsh... It's hard to explain but everything just sounds more detailed and solid.The real value was when I used it to clock my Lynx L22 for mastering from the outputs of the Apollo. I noticed a HUGE difference in the overall "bigness" and detail after using the outboard gear for mastering.I'm very satisfied with whatever voodoo this clock did to my studio's sound.

"If you need thick lows and crisp highs in a subtile Audio chain."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
There is a make three years of this item which has Inc. played out put in an additional 192 kHz if you are getting a word clock experience as well as a black lion are you experience for the first time I suggest you listen to your unit that you currently have at 44.1 and then incorporate the micro clock in K2 and your chain there will be a difference depending on the ear some people can tell right away others have to do things with their mixes postAnd Cree but I assure you there will be a different sound. If you use an audio interface the clock that determines clicks and pops on your system this unit may improve your sound first before improving clicks and pops that’s a normal thing do not panic. If you’re having problems with clicks and pops I would suggest and RME interface, The internal clock is superb. Your computer is taking 44,100 snapshots per second at 44.1 K so if it’s at 192,000 snapshots per second why wouldn’t things sound better.

"Black Lion micro clock mkII"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Black Lion is a small company that builds exceptional value into their audio product line, at bargain prices. They also specialize in custom modification of some audio equipment made by other manufacturers. The Micro Clock MKII is no exception. Using it as a 'master' clock in the studio, has enabled me to record at higher sample rates, with more confidence, knowing that the recorded sound source is continually and more faithfully reproduced at playback, without added 'artifacts,' that sometimes occur in the digital conversion process. I am told that there is an added benefit to using the micro clock that 'opens or, widens' the audible stereo field. What I know is it sounds no worse (and that is saying something, whenever adding additional units in an electronic audio chain) and it very well may improve the quality of sound. If you are linking more than one digital device in your studio, I believe you will benefit from purchasing a Black Lion Micro Clock MKII as the master timing source. Play good and mix well.
