The worlds most revolutionary
Master Clock

Big Ben, the worlds most revolutionary Master Clock, features Apogee’s legendary clocking technology and much more into one standalone unit. Supporting all sample rates and offering clocking technologies, “C777” and “Adaptive Loop Filtering” (ALF), Big Ben is the most stable, low jitter clock available. Big Ben will synchronize all digital equipment in the recording environment bringing clarity, depth and accuracy to recording and mixing that will be heard immediately.

Providing incredible flexibility with available formats of AES, S/PDIF, Optical, six (6) Word Clock outs and an expansion slot of the X-Video option card, Big Ben will synchronize any studio and provide format conversion simultaneously.

 

Adaptive Loop Filtering (ALF)

ALF maximizes Big Ben’s clocking ability with an intelligent low pass filter. With the C777 creating all incoming signals into data (1’s and 0’s) Big Ben is able to dynamically compensate for excessive jitter and even improve already acceptable clock signals to levels unattainable until now. No matter what your input looks like, ALF can adapt and overcome all obstacles to create a stable, reliable, low jitter clock source.
