Windows Timing Machine
WTM - A PC based Clock Timing Machine
The Windows Timing Machine is designed to use your PC as a low cost clock timing machine. It uses your system's Soundblaster compatible sound card to record ticks and then graphically displays and analyzes them to calculate the movement's rate and how well in-beat it is adjusted.
This Version 2 release is a significant upgrade to the earlier version and incorporates the most requested enhancements from users. New features include:
Now includes pendulum length calculations. You can enter the desired beat setting in beats per hour, minute, or second and the program will calculate the required pendulum length in inches and centimeters and also tell you how much longer or shorter you need to adjust the pendulum to bring it to time. Now displays beat setting as both a percentage and milliseconds difference. Time saving convenience feature built-in where default command buttons automatically change based on your last command so for the most often used operations, all you need to do is repeatedly press the return key.

The Windows Timing Machine runs on PC compatibles running Windows 3.X, Windows for Workgroups or Windows 95 and requires a Soundblaster compatible sound board. The demo is fully functional except that it is uncalibrated. The registered version is identical to the demo except it can be calibrated to your specific sound card to provide accurate timing results.
