What’s a DIN Sync?

DIN Sync is an analog clock synchronization standard created before MIDI took over. In fact, it uses the same DIN cable as MIDI, confusing things further. DIN Sync is used in a lot of older Roland and Korg gear such as the Roland TR-808 or 909. The Missing Link now supports DIN Sync clocking standards via an 1/8″ TS to DIN plug adapter. It’s easy to make an adapter if you are handy with a soldering iron.
