FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What's in the box?
Where can I order my own Timetosser?
After a successful Kickstarter, we now continue our campaign on Indiegogo. For a limited time, you will still be able to pre-order your Timetosser at a reduced price: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/timetosser-presented-by-alter-audio
What are Timetosser's audio specs?
In stand-alone mode, the audio resolution is 24-bit, 96 Khz. This allows for buffering up to 16 seconds of audio (or 16 beats @ 60 BPM), with a round-trip latency of 0.3 milliseconds. In USB-mode, sampling rates up to 192 Khz are supported. The round-trip latency will depend on the driver-model (Windows Audio / ASIO / Core Audio) and the selected buffer size.
Why is Timetosser using the type-B midi adapter variant?
The type B pinout allows the double functionality of the sync / midi input. Connect a supplied adapter to use it as a midi input, or use a mono mini-jack cable when using gate signals. The same pinout is used on the midi-output as well. Note that you can use stereo mini-jack cables to directly connect to other gear that uses the type-B standard, like the Arturia Beatstep Pro.
What does the "tap-tempo" button do?
When Timetosser is externally synchronised through midi or gate, the tap tempo allows you to tap in a multiplier of the external tempo. This way, you’re able to halve, double or even set the internal tempo to a fraction of the external tempo. When not externally synced, the tap-tempo is used as a “hint” for the built-in tempo detector. This way, the system is able to home in on the correct tempo faster. The internal tempo is sent out to the midi-output.
Can I control Timetosser with midi?
All buttons will respond to the midi-input and button presses are sent to the midi-output too. This way, you can sequence Timetosser with an external device or DAW. The midi channel Timetosser responds to will be selectable with the help of a companion-app that will also allow you to update the firmware.
