  1. Haha... I think your right. This evening I've tried to change the settings but now it adds the delay on all channels. I'm quite sure it worked for a while because I've made a couple of recordings that way. But I have no idea how I made it work and why it didn't work now. I came home late this evening. I'll give it another try on another day. For now I can't make it work... Greetings
  2. I've bought mine in April this year. There was once a firmware update, but as far as I know no modification on the units. It's a little fiddly to set it up correctly and I also had to make a couple of tries. Here are some snapshots of my settings. The analogue audio comes in on channels 1+2 and the camera audio on channel 3+4. Usually I feed a timecode-signal from my tentacle sync to channels 1+2 and the camera audio goes to channel 3+4. I hope this helps Greetings
  3. In this case I guess your settings on the Atomos Ninja V are wrong. I also use it and I'm able to set a delay on the analogue input that doesn't affect the sound coming with the HDMI signal. It get them both perfectly in sync.Like you've mentioned - it would make little sense to add a delay on both signals. Greetings
  4. These kind of things can happen to every manufacturer. Products these days are complex and production cicles short. But in this case I agree with IronFilm. Or something works properly, or it doesn't. It's simple like that. Greetings
  5. Why don't you simply sync the first audio file to the video footage and append the other audio files to the first one manually? The recording should be without gap (if the audio was splitted by the recorder) so you don't have to sync each audio track seperately. If you have different video files you have to do this operation once for each clip. Maybe someone else has a better solution. Greetings
  6. You might consider the new DPA 2028. Costing about the same as the Neumann KMS 105, with interchangable capsules it seems to be a good choice for your application. Greetings
  7. @ Werner Althaus Yes, they mainly use them on vocals. Greetings
  8. Cinela is probably the best solution around, but for people like me that are no full time professional sound guys and on a budget it's hard to justify the investment. Using an MHK 8060 and spending more than the cost of the mic for the Windshield/Suspension (with accessoires) makes you thinking about the benefits of the Cinela and the downsides of a cheaper solution. So I decided to go with a Rycote System and it works fine for me. I know that there are better mics and windshields around, but I also know that my work has a much higher influence on the result than any brands product Greetings
  9. The microphone choice on the NPR concerts is due to the small distances of the musicians and crosstalk. But it's a good example that the most important things on a recording happens infront of the microphone Greetings
  10. As far as I know on the GH camera models that have the same timecode feature the timecode sync isn't accurate. It's always a couple of frames off sync. I have no idea if they fixed that in the S1H, but honestly I wouldn't rely on that. Better to use the tentacle sync on one the left audio channel of the camera (with a splitter cable) and use the right channel as a mic input. Or going directly into the mic input of the camera (without splitter cable) using the tentacle mic as scratch mic. Greetings
  11. @ constantin If they couldn't be synced to other devices what sense would make the inbiult timecode generator? As far as Ulli from Tentacle mentioned bluetooth is not ideal for time critical applications and that it's reccomended to jam the units via cable. For monitoring purposes bluetooth is okay because they refresh the signal only once a second. Maybe they can't jam other devices so the classical Sync E is used on devices that usually have no timecode option. But it seems we have to wait and see... Greetings
  12. I have also a coupe of concealers but my favorite mounting option is to cut an ursa foamie in half and attach it with a sticky. Works perfect on a variety of mounting places. Because of the protection of the foam I never get any clothing rustle. They are available in two colors (black and white) and two sizes (foamies and mini foamies). I use the regular ones. Just prepare them in advance and you can rig them quick and easy. Here's a short demo... Greetings
  13. @ daniel It should work. If they can be synced (probably via the mic input) they should also be able jam other units. But you're right. In their demo videos it's not really clear because they don't show how they get synched and they use normal tentacles for the camera. But even if they just can be jammed, it wouldn't be a dealbreaker, because you can simply use a the TC of the camera or field recorder, or jam a normal tentacle on them. On the Gotham Sounds YouTube channel they have had a nice demo video of the normal E units that shows the saftey features of the bluetooth technology. So it alerts you when one unit is out of jam, you set the wrong framerate, or the input connector is not connected. Greetings
  14. Here is a first impression video from the ibc. Nothing really new to know, but at least a quick look at the app where the levels can be checked and also set via the app. Greetings
  15. It was just an idea, because mine sounded on the tascam as crappy as yours. Greetings
