  1. I’m working on a custom controller for myself for the MixPre ii. The way it is set up, it checks the USB PID and VID to see if it is one of the 3 controllers it supports, and then implements MIDI mappings based on that. If you plug a USB MIDI device that doesn’t have those PIDs it simply does not recognise that it has a control surface plugged in. It wouldn’t be that hard to build a USB MIDI pass through device with a Teensy with the USB host shield, or simply using the MIDI in schematic on the PJRC MIDI library webpage. You could even change MIDI mappings to whatever you wanted, therefore using any controller you liked with the 8 series. I’ll post photos of my project when it looks prettier.
  2. Excuse my ignorance. But with known quantity near bare metal hardware you can predict the latencies of a lot of these issues surely? Such as incrementing the frame counter by 2 from incoming, and then delaying output by inverse of combined measured latency of dac + 7 segment display chips. You could also sanitise incoming against errors, comparing expected to received. Not the same as running an actual clock, but seems at least similarly reliable to an rtc in a normal computer. But I’m just a dabbler in hardware!
  3. Does anyone know, or can Andrew from Deity confirm, if it can sync to a standard timecode input? The promotional videos I’ve seen only show timecode going into DSLRs as audio. Obviously this is a problem for shooting red raw, but also I’d like the backup of sending timecode to a sync input, as well as a scratch track and audio timecode to a stereo input like with this ERX cable: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1115945-REG/remote_audio_cazerxalexa_unbalanced_breakout_cable_3_5mm.html will this cable work with a bp-trx in hops/timecode mode with an Alexa for example?
  4. I feel there’s too much to go wrong with running an entire Linux distro just to read and decode timecode. I have a teensy with an audio hat lying around, I’ll give it a go with one of these libraries: https://github.com/FrankBoesing/LinearTimecode-Decoder https://0110.be/posts/LTC_-_SMPTE_Decoder_on_Teensy would then be easy to outputbto one of these: https://core-electronics.com.au/gravity-8-digital-led-segment-display-module-red.html?utm_source=google_shopping&gclid=Cj0KCQjw_dWGBhDAARIsAMcYuJxotl_6SXlm8klcWeddKJa-Xs7MdwfT0HCEhnYsP5Pl5oq83kAYy70aAmk5EALw_wcB
  5. This is amazing! I capture SD multicam from time to time and have been using Media Express with Intensity Shuttles on 3 laptops. Keeping filenames and metadata the same across the 3 is such a nightmare. The director I work for just bought a sumo to free me up off the desk and is annoyed that we’re just hearing about this now! How long until you see a paid version with no watermark for Mac? I’d pay for an early access as a backup in case the sumo craps it mid shoot.
