I agree with Adam. Oh and by the way, thanks Adam for the recommending the Orpheus about 6 months ago to me. I was a little 'sketchy' about taking the leap to the Orpheus, but once I heard it...... Wowwww ! And I'm a big fan of the AD 16X and Rosetta 800 I have, but whoa... I wasn't ready for the shock-value that comes with hearing the Orpheus ! That thing is borderline uncanny. I hear things audibly happening behind my back while sitting in a stereo Near-field monitoring setup ! With regard to needing a clock..... I used the Orpheus to clock an old synth I have (Roland XV-5080) and it literally made the thing sound like a brand new modern synth, no exaggeration !!! It's like I'm discovering new sounds in it for the first time ! As good as Big Ben is, it never had such a dramatic effect on any piece of gear I've had. You have absolutely nothing to worry about with the Orpheus' clock - Reub.
