  1. Correct. Basically, you can't sync an app (or software for that matter). "Sync" as we refer to is a hardware level process which needs a constant, clocked connection. Neither the "host" platform mobile phone nor the source, Bluetooth allow for this. Instead, the process we are looking at her e with these implementations is actually a TC jam where the timecode value is aligned at the begin of recording. On from then the jammed unit is running completely on its own internal clock speed. From a professional perspective it is pretty much like having TC but no genlock - and we all know
  2. Suggestion accepted, thank you. We surely can look into making it smaller now and I will bring that up. Still it needs to be large enough for any radio, not just SSM and surely rigid enough so it doesn't move or hit the boom, so, not sure how much we could practically shelf off. To explain the indisputable clunky design of our current offering: Quicklok is completely optional, but on a wireless boom most likely want to have it in place, and if so remove Windshield with the radio attached. This again needs to be so rigid it , while at the same time supporting whatever windshield/Mic combo
  3. Quite opposite, thank you, @LarryF for putting my attention to it! I was baffled as it is the same convertor we used in the UMP II and this had better life time on the CMIT. So I checked and found there were lines shifted in the spreadsheet and 6hrs were the time it ran on the maximum allowed current draw of 10mA Again, we'll be working on a table that should be available soon. @RadoStefanov, I can surely get that on the road, meanwhile there's a video showing them side by side on SoundSummit YT channel and it is the same size as the current Lockit.
  4. We prefer under promise and over deliver than the other way.So, deliberately tested the worst case scenario with an old NON Lectro NP-50 rated at 650mAh The one supplied (oh and a USB charger cradle, too) is reasonable quality, rated 750mAh and will last longer, considerably longer if people opt for the Lectro/Panasonic batteries (which we have been finding only few people invest into on quopting). Also, acording to our experience 4.4mA @48V seems a tad on the optimistic side. But we have had other mics running for days. Again, bare with us while the run time tables are still in the
  5. Working on it. We had a Schoeps CMIT running for 6hrs +, so that's the short side of the spectrum.
  6. The long wait is finally over, we are happy to finally announce shipping of the UMP III has begun. https://ambient.de/en/product/ump-iii-universal-microphone-power-supply/

  8. Step after step We found most of the people we talked to that would fall into the target group of smaller teams, individual shooters, also mostly industrial/image/investigatory/documentary related projects actually do work on premiere and then FCP X. Especially Avid is comon in larger, dare I say professional productions with a larger team and such a dedicated script supervisor to take notes. Oh, and I forgot to mention our API is open and free and the logs can easily be extracted from every Nano (including all units shipped since 3 years)... as such we actually are in communication wi
  9. Final Cut is definitely on our radar. We have even put that as our first stretch goal as being the second preference platform in use for the targeted user base. As soon this feature has gained enough traction we will have look at it.
  10. Hi everybody, Ambient has recently kicked off a campaign to extend the application of our trusted NanoLockit beyond the use as a timecode synchronizer. This exciting feature will allow you to read out a log file of button presses and use them as markers, cue points, you name it using an additional panel for Adobe Premiere (the platform in use for most of the productions it is targeted at). We had this spinning in our heads for quite a while and actually the reason the Nano shipped with 3 buttons and a lanyard since day one. Now that we finally found opportunity to evaluate it's
  11. Understood, will bring that suggestion in on the next meeting.
  12. Most of them are stocking already, QP5130 and 5150 incoming, so ready to accept orders. Depends on the construction of the cup, but yes, possibly. Agreed, I noted that as well and already talkedto our content team. what do you mean by stats? Also, while we only will carry little stock on certain QXS models and both QP, this might end up confusing if including anything aside current production lines QP S5 and QS.
  13. thanks for putting to our attention, will put our web design team on it.
  14. 34mm, all tube diameters are pretty much like on the QXS. However, this is an all new tube construction making this range much more rigid, on a level of the QP. yes, absolutely. It comes in the exact same lenghts than the QXS ppluss adding the QP5150. Yes, QS is still our premium/feature film boom, for those preferring less shells, lower diameter (30mm) and do not care about the length when collapsed. You're referring to the QAPL? Yes. Also, the new end pieces will fit the older boompoles (you'd need either to put on amini XLR, or solder the XLR direct, though)
