  1. True. But the F2-BT only gets timecode from an external timecode generator like the UltraSync BLUE. Perhaps that's how Zoom skirted the timecode portion of the patent... since it not built-in...
  2. Which powerbank are you using? I use the Anker PowerCore+ 20100 that Sound Devices recommends. I've run it non-stop for hours and it's been flawless.
  3. Yes I know. 🙂 I was simply using that as an example of how TC would still be useful even if someone is worried about a tiny bit of drift. Whether you use the Studio software for audio-based timecode files... or your NLE's built-in syncing function for metadata-based timecode files... having TC is definitely awesome.
  4. Exactly. That's the whole point of Tentacle boxes. They have VERY accurate clocks inside them. And once they are jammed or synced together... they will keep consistent time for a long time. If they didn't... then they wouldn't be very useful... 😀 I haven't heard many complaints from owners of Tentacle boxes. They seem to work very well and are usually highly recommended. Though you should probably slate whenever you can. Just to be safe. You can still use the Tentacle Sync Studio software to arrange all your clips... even if you have to adj
  5. Yes... I was hoping they could be used as extra TC boxes when you don't need audio recording. But this way they can still sell you the standard Sync E boxes for each of your devices... 😎
  6. Here's another review: https://wavreport.com/2020/11/12/review-tentacle-track-e/
  7. The Track E finally has a listing on B&H !!! https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1506356-REG/tentacle_sync_track_e_pocket_audio.html
  8. Yeah I'm wondering the same thing. I have a MixPre-6 II that has its own timecode... so I was planning on getting a Sync E for my camera. BUT... if the Track E can do the same things as the Sync E... I might as well get that instead and have a bonus audio recorder for other applications. The Track E is slightly bigger than the Sync E... but both are still very small. They both have timecode capabilities built-in... and both have 3.5mm jacks (which is how you would jam timecode in/out) So it's very possible that the Track E can perform as a Sync
