  1. Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    How to use this IRT version with Aaton XTR camera and Origin master clock? Can Aaton start/stop Nagra when initialized with TC generator (Origin). If not initialized it camera sends ASCI code (exposed on film) through Lemo 5.
  2. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    Testing Sony walkman with Aaton modd. TC received from Origin - red diode blinks. It doesn't start with wooden grip. Do you know this mic socket? XLR mini?
  3. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    Ok disassembled Tuchel and cable has signal wire plus shell. Do you remember pinout in Nagra? 1 is ground and 2,3 is signal. I should short 1+3?
  4. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    How connect 816T mic to Nagra 4.2? Plug/socket has different diameter, Nagra has modern XLR socket. Mic comes with MZA15 battery adapter and MZF15 highpass filter.
  5. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    Thanks for explanation David. So I'm looking for universal mic pre, plexi cover, rubber gasket. Is there external crystal sync (record and playback) for Nagra SN? Purpose of red cover?
  6. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    And advice how use LN (low noise) vs. STD tape selector. Crystal sync works, QLSI is there.
  7. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    A bit strange T12 cannot be switched off.
  8. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    Yes Google explains opposite connection only.
  9. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    Nagra 4.2 can be started/stopped shorting Mixer pins - will test soon. But my newly purchased 4.2 has T12 only (no selector). How can I connect P48 mic or dynamic?
  10. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    It is key code because I did not have OriginC to initialize TC. I thought I can extract TC from audio file and see in let say Premiere.

    David, I have no problem requesting to scan whole are of film. See attached scan of Ektachrome 400. ASCII code is K452 from XTR.

    Constantin, I want point and shot and not bother with sound at all - like a camcorder. First we discussed trigger coupled with camera button but there is no solution we must hack remotes for popular recorders. Second solution is timecode exposed on film and in audio file but I am amateur and don't know how to handle in popular apps that why looking for advices. If I could have time code displayed with audio file then could copy fragment that is on film and combine. Is there any other solution without pushing rec or slate button each scene?
  13. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    Keylink is no go. I asked my lab and response was null. Why I can't do this manually?
  14. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    I'm interested if Aaton code could be read from audio file.
  15. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    This is how TC on film looks like but my XTR prints ASCII only.
