Grimm Audio's Video to Word Clock Converter VCC adds video-sync functionality to the CC1 or any other word clock receiving device. Although many postproduction facilities have selected word clock for all their synchronisation needs, in some cases an audio system just has to synchronize to a video source. VCC offers a convenient add-on system that takes very little space.
In some cases an audio system just has to synchronize to a video source.
VCC will slave to both PAL and NTSC. Its power light doubles as lock indicator. The rugged box and fixed power adapter connection make sure this vital function will perform reliable even in live setups.
Mark that although the VCC can turn the word clock input of any device into a video clock input, it has no jitter attenuation of its own. For low jitter performance, please use the VCC with a Grimm CC1.
Lately I've noticed my system wasn't sounding so great and found my CC2 was accidently turned off. Once I secured the power cord, turning on the unit, I happily noticed how much more vivid, dimensional, and natural everything sounded.

I could always hear improvements in sound quality

Never before I heard immersion like this in the low frequency range
Chen Weichang, Hifi Review, Hongkong (CC1)
In many years I tried all brands of the world for a master clock. So far only the CC1 can really fulfill my wishes.
Terence Lai, SACD Production Center, Hong Kong (CC1)
It was as if a veil was lifted from the mix: clarity, punch, depth, stereo image, everything improved.
Matthijs Kievit, Studio Joneski, Utrecht (CC2)
The CC1 is a brilliantly designed piece of equipment. Every piece of gear that I plugged into it sounded better and more natural.
Erik Zobler, Mix Magazine, Los Angeles (CC1)
It seems as if the musicians have more fun when they play music.
Ingo Iebhart, hifi enthusiast, Eberdingen (CC1)
I was impressed by how my chain with the EMM's got a benefit when I added a Grimm clock to my setup. Guided by what the literature and many designers are saying I was stunned about the change in a positive way) in sound.
Daniel Dettwiler, Idee und Klang Studio, Basel (CC1)
Realize that not all timepieces are created equally. In this regard, the Grimm CC1 has no peer.
Bob Katz and Garrett Haines, TapeOp, Sacramanto (CC1)
Last week I was recording a strings section and piano. My client was very happy and he asked me if I changed something in the studio. Of course, it was your CC1.
Josep Umbria, Calma Estudis, Manacor (CC1)
I buy and sell a lot of stuff, but the CC1 is not leaving the building.
Alex Abrash, AA Mastering, New York (CC1)
I had a client ask why my mixes were so much better this week.
John Davis, The Bunker Studio, New York (CC1)
I did some sessions in 44.1, 48 and 96. It works great, and sounds fantastic. The CC1 is such a great upgrade in the studio, amazing!
Samuel Girardin, Point d'Orgue, Montreal (CC1)
Its job is so critical that I’d never settle for less.
Richard Chycki, Toronto (CC1)
The CC1 brings out a level of detail and clarity that I had dismissed as only possible with analog.
John Davis, The Bunker Studio, New York (CC1)
I was in the opportunity to hear your CC1 unit and I have to say INCREDIBLE!!
Carlos Imperatori, Producciones Tumbador, Caracas (CC1)
The reviews I read are good, but to me what I experienced in our system was greater.
Aaron Gandia, Phat Planet Studios, Orlando (CC1)
I'm in tears, listening to my own recordings.
Ben Zijlstra, Dutch Film & Television Academy, Amsterdam (CC1)
I had expected a small sound improvement. What happened is just the opposite: I am very impressed.
Gerd Hoppe, hifi enthusiast, Alicante (CC1)
A signal that sounds pretty decent with a good clock, sounds just incredible with the Grimm Clock.
Hay Zeelen, Hay Zeelen Mastering, Amsterdam (CC1)
This clock is incredible. The detail and imaging from it are superior to anything we heard.
Allen Farmelo, Pink Noise magazine, Hopewell Junction (CC1)
I didn't know clock influence was that big!
Tim Vine-Lott, Air studios, London (CC1)
The jitter measurement results of the CC1 were the best of all competitors.
Friedemann Kootz, Studio Magazin, Oberhausen (CC1)
We are very impressed by the quality of this unit.
Günther Pauler, Pauler Acoustics, Northeim (CC1)
My most impressive upgrade so far!
Puck Leek, Pucksound, Amsterdam (CC2)
Suddenly and distinctly, there's a palpable increase in naturalness, extension and spaciousness.
Nicholas Bedworth, Positive Feedback, Makawao (CC1)
What can I say... what a difference
Michael Pfeiffer Strauss, Erftstadt (CC1)
During our sessions with Grammy winning saxophonist Kenny Garrett, the CC1 made all the difference in the world!
Al Pryor & Todd Whitelock, Mack Avenue records, Hempstead (CC1)
This is a major improvement. We need much less eq on the high end, the low end sounds more solid and the punch on the snare is great. This clock is a large improvement, we were amazed.
Peter Riebeek, Studio 150, Amsterdam (CC1)
After installing your CC1, I often catch myself thinking that I listen to 88.2 when in reality it is 44.1. Their difference used to be much larger, and both sound much better now.
