    SD 633 X3/X4 question

    You should be able to set the ISO tracks to prefade by preselecting the prefade option in the bottom line of the output / x3x4 / menu. You can not put L R or x1x2 to prefade, but that is in the nature of things as they are postfade.

    Induction Kitchen Nightmare

    I experienced something similar, but with the 5000 series / Sennheiser - and it was not with induction ovens but with the ultrasonic connection of hairpieces (extensions) at the hairdressers. The radio link could not be used at all.

    633 PFL

    With the 633, it's that the PFL mode follows the ISO setting. The 664 allows a separate PFL mode setting, the 633 doesn't. The manual advises to use PFL (and explains PFL as pre- or post fade listening).

    Maybe stolen gear on ebay

    Oh, there it is again. The "no-pick-up" was in northern Italy before, wasn't it. I hope that anybody on eBay who is tempted to buy thinks twice! Edit: I wrote eBay to check on the account.

    Finally a cheap and accurate Timecode slate?

    I see the timebar app not as a slate but more like the modern version of the script boy device (older people will remember). For situations, when editorial staff wants to take notes during production and so on.

    Update on the upcoming Tentacle Sync-E

    Yes, you are right, I forgot to mention! The boxes already have names (but can be changed), and the various devices are always shown in alphabetical order on the app's display. That is really helpful, because you can find an entry at first sight.

    Update on the upcoming Tentacle Sync-E

    No, I didn't check, but one of the videos Matt Price uploaded on youtube deals with that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdNLglzZzSc The new Bluetooth technology goes beyond the 1:1 connection, so different Tentacles are displayed side by side on the screen in the app. Each of them has a Bluetooth connection to the phone / smart device at the same time. I am looking forward to more purposes of this new Bluetooth type! Jule

    Update on the upcoming Tentacle Sync-E

    I have 2nd generation Tentacles - and they basically work like the 1st generation, but there are some features on top. You can put one Tentacle in green mode and connect to another Tentacle (red mode) via 3,5 jack connector - so the formerly red flashing device starts to flash green, too. So after the flashing light has changed color to green, the Tentacle has “learned” TC and frame rate from the tentacle with wich it was connected. You can also jam the Tentacle boxes from the TC source in the recorder. The frame rate will be jammed, too. The 2nd generation Tentacles connect to a smartphone, too. They connect through Bluetooth. You can set parameters for the Tentacle boxes on the screen of your phone, if you wish you can set the box to phone time like you could with the first generation - just without a cable. You can supervise the Tentacle boxes with your phone/smart device. Flawless operation and operator errors will be displayed on a screen within the app. When I played (messed) around today I found a warning for FPS (not matching) and cable (connection missing) From my experience with the 1st generation Tentacles, they do not need supervision. The only thing I got additionally was sleeves that clamped the mini jacks with the boxes. The new Tentacle boxes come with clamps. The new boxes have USB A / USB C charging cables.

    Rycote Kit 1 and 8060 observation UPDATE

    Yes, two washers under each screw, no washers on the inside. In noisy situations (red carpets, mixed zones in sports) I'd hope that I am working for a reportage where handheld microphones “are allowed“. I worked on a noisy fair the other day and I was lucky to be able to boom from below so the bodies were blocking much of the noise. And if you do tests with the MKH 416 and the MKH 8060 please write about this!

    Rycote Kit 1 and 8060 observation UPDATE

    Hi, I am using the WS1 + MZL for a Sennheiser 8060. (My basket has the ridge as well.) And yes, there is a little bit of a plus of handling noise when the basket is mounted. But it is not as crass as you describe it. May be you have a defective item? I still love this set up because it is so comfortably small and along with a short ambient boom (QP 450) I can work all day almost effortlessly.
