Tempi

Tempi is a 6-channel clock module by Make Noise.

Leading Clock

Tempi clocks are all relative to the Leading clock. If an external clock is patched to TEMPO it is the leading clock, otherwise the leading clock is generated internally either via the state select controls, or tap tempo on Button1, depending on Clock Edit settings.
