  1. Apparently, they are wasting no time...
  2. Not. Just jam in the morning and after lunch.
  3. 4 weeks in to a show shooting on two Minis and occasionally an Amira as camera C - jam in the morning and after lunch. We are also slating with a TS3. So far no complaints. Cameras are consistently 2 frames off, but that's a known "issue".
  4. Thanks for sharing this Kelly!
  5. I recommend checking out this info from a widely trusted company that arguably makes some of the best converters on the market:
  6. - Automatic separation of recorded sound sources - Automatic removal of background noises . So yeah, pay attention producers of 19 cast member reality - no need to wire anyone, just plant this anywhere in the room and each capsule will automagically detect different sources and record high quality isos without background noise. Fantastic.
  7. I apologize if my sense of humor does not please you. I would say that these are not at all the same as a 302. FWIW, I tried to sell my 302 for 6 months last year, no takers, so I decided to keep it. It will come in handy when you least expect it. And for me personally, it already has, despite the fact that I also have both the 633 and 664.
  8. Yes. As soon as any new product comes out - all other products stop functioning, and become obsolete paper weights.
  9. Brent, you will be fine. My earlier comment about accurately checking TC was aimed at those who started going on about human ability to see whether it was one frame out, or whatever by looking at the flash. FWIW - the Tentacles have been solid for me since I got them (I got two from their original IndieGo startup project). I would say that if you jam it from your recorder (or whatever solid master clock you use), see that the green flash keeps going, you will be in sync within half a frame over 12 hours. At least that is my experience. I do not even re-jam at lunch anymore. A few times I have left the tentacles on after a full day, until I get home, and checked them with the 6-series - still in sync every time I have done this test.
  10. I would suggest not to hope, but rather make sure. Talk to one of the usual suspects and they will get you sorted.
  11. Yes, works - as long as it's wired correctly.
  12. If you are using a 6-series SD mixer/recorder, simply plug the tentacle into it, scroll to TC Jam Menu. There you can see incoming timecode accurately compared to the internal one.
  13. Yes, they blink on every second. However, it should be green, not red when it's been jammed.
  14. I received an email from Izotope today announcing that RX 6 is due to be released on 4/20. ==== RX 6 is coming April 20th! Built on years of extensive research in advanced digital signal processing and machine learning, RX 6 features cutting-edge technologies for post production like lav mic de-rustle, dialogue isolation, and low-end wind rumble removal. It also introduces creative approaches to age-old music recording problems like microphone bleed, sibilance, mouth clicks, and breaths. With version 6, RX advances to the next level of audio repair that once seemed impossible. Get a sneak preview of RX 6 and sign up for a Westlake Pro webinar that will be live streamed on April 20th. ====
  15. Thanks Brent. The only difference from my setup would be the qrx200. I have used it with both 633 and 664. Lectros and Comtek. No 2-stroke putting. Makes me wonder if perhaps you got a faulty Wingman...?
