Apogee Big Ben Master Clock  - Information

Apogee Big Ben is the ultimate master clock for your Studio setup. Apogee Big Ben was designed to provide a synchronization hub for the centre of your studio, offering ultra low, jitter free sample rates of up to 192 kHz. In short, Apogee Big Ben is simply the World's Most Revolutionary Studio Clock.

For years audio professionals have been requesting that Apogee make their legendary clocking technology available in a stand-alone master clock. Apogee responded not only by making it available but by making it revolutionary in the form of Big Ben, which is already astonishing users with its ability to bring amazing clarity and quality to audio production while providing flexibility and features like no other studio clock before.

At the heart of any word clock regeneration is a phase lock loop (PLL). The PLL is a combination of analog and digital elements without the ability to dynamically adapt to the nature of the external clocks. In other words, the better the clock performance, the less flexibility it has. And conversely, the more flexibility there is in a PLL, the less effective it is at jitter reduction. Apogee’s new C777 is built to address these inadequacies. The C777 utilizes an entirely digital process that Apogee has developed using the most advanced Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) technology available along with DSP based digital filtering. The result is the most aggressive jitter reduction ever. With the flexibility and stability provided the C777, Big Ben is able to re-clock devices with excessive jitter and function as if it were the master clock. The ultimate in flexibility combined with unprecedented levels of performance make the C777 unequaled in the world of clocking.

Note that you would expect it from a master clock, BIG BEN gives you the option of real-time format conversion. Use BIG BEN’s intuitive digital display to go from S/PDIF to AES, AES to ADAT, ADAT to S/PDIF, etc. Very often in an elaborate audio chain word clock signals are improperly terminated. BIG BEN will chime in with a visual indication of over or under termination on it’s digital display for each word clock output, allowing you to troubleshoot more quickly and get back to business. Apogee Big Ben Features:

  • AES, S/PDIF, Optical I/O - Word Clock/Video In - 6 Word Clock Outs
  • Optional X-Video expansion card to provide master video sync generator
  • Realtime format conversion between all digital formats
  • Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) using Apogee´s C777 Clock Technology up to 192kHz
  • Adaptive Loop Filtering (ALF) to optimize clock performance and minimize jitter
  • Three stage Termination Sensing for each word clock output
  • Optional video sync (X-Video card)
