  1. Well I don't have the K-Tek, but I do have the Remote Audio one, which is a different concept, and it's shaped quite differently, but in about 6-7 years of using it, it has never fallen over. And it has become a very valuable part of my kit. It's very light, too. Oh, and it's even more expensive
  2. In which case I'll do TOD -12
  3. I hope not, that would make it really heavy
  4. It's fixed. It says "on/off".
  5. Of course, there is almost always something cheaper, but is it better? Are the mic preamps even vaguely of the same quality?
  6. As Jon suggested: is the phantom power on your 744 engaged?
  7. What are you connecting it to?
  8. That's why they have that battery which lasts 4.5 hours
  9. Grant above is right. In addition, audio post doesn't normally sync audio and video. This is for the edit room. Once they have done that, the software used becomes irrelevant. They will then have to coordinate with all subsequent post positions. None of that will have anything to do with the sync software, much less with the TC generator used on set. If you are having trouble using the various Tentacle apps, or DaVinci Resolve (which is from another manufacturer, of course) you should perhaps contact them for advice
  10. To be fair, PluralEyes is also additional software. There used to be an AuxTC add-pn for FinalCut, not sure if that still exists. Then there is the Tentacle software, which isn't free (unless you already have a Tentacle), because it can sync AudioTC as well as regular TC...
  11. There are lots of one side headsets available. Just take off the mic if you don't need it and you're done. In fact, I find it easier to find a one sided headset than one with both cups
  12. As I understand it, it's only for initial setup, not for syncing throughout. Latency is no issue then, and range isn't either
  13. SMPTE timecode doesn't support framerates such as 60fps. If you can use a slate, otherwise post will have to deal with it, as they apparently are now
  14. I have to say that, while I am usually something of an SD liker, I find the following somewhat misleading, considering the above...
  15. Yes, of course. I didn't think you'd deliberately waited. And trying to build a really small TC box seems like kimd of a no brainer. At least today it does...
