  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 is trigered (start/stop) with simple non stable button. I'd like trigger audio recorder same way but most use dedicated remotes. Any idea which recorders (portable) can be started/stopped with one button? I want keep setup simple as possible. Zoom is nice because record 10s earlier.
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

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

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

    Yes Google explains opposite connection only.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

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

    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?
  14. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

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

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

    This is how TC on film looks like but my XTR prints ASCII only.
  17. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    So there is no code in audio track I could import to popular applications and manually sync with picture?
  18. I'm looking for affordable audio recorder or smartphone app so that I could record sound pushing and holding button on wire and when release that button stop recording without much delay.
  19. Audio recorder with external rec button

    How to read time code from recorder when it is jammed with Aaton Origin and code is also exposed on film? How to match both?
  20. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    How to read code from recorder and visually match with code exposed on film? Both jammed with Origin.
  21. Audio recorder with external rec button

    Zaxcom says it is not possible. Possibly my Aaton XTR can turn on Zaxcom using TC - camera has 5 pins Lemo. I need special cable with attenuator?
  22. Audio recorder with external rec button

    These are big and some heavy - would be nice something to be attached to camera. F8 has slate, haven't found any button trigger.
  23. Audio recorder with external rec button

    Good point Olle. Will check F8. Just need fire 16mm camera with recorder. Tascam DR100mk2 uses proprietary trigger.
  24. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    Aaton can't advice how to use Origin. I think it is useless if can't trigger both camera and recorder or expose TC on film.
  25. Aaton XTR sync start/stop

    What is Aaton coder MK4?
