  1. The Tonmeister App is finally online and we added some more neat and free of charge features. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tonmeister/id931110535?l=de&ls=1&mt=8 (In response to the big amount of interest, feedback and questions I opened this new thread so nobody has to jump to the last page of our NAB thread all the time.) We are all sincerely sorry for the delay! To give you a more detailed explanation please read the6 new products thread. We think that the additional development time resulted in a more reliable app and we hope that you will like the tool. Please sha
  2. Some advice please... 2 questions. I'm recording a round table (L shaped actually) focus group discussion (about 5 ppl) and have been told that ease of mind is paramount for the subjects and rifle mic's are out of the question. It has also been intimated that laving people up might make them nervous (I dont think its a group of paranoid schizophrenics but I cant swear to it) I also got to view a previous video and it had a pretty crappy omni mic setup (maybe on cam) but one could hear what they were saying. I dont think quality is paramount here, but of course one has
  3. Hello everyone! My CL-WiFi doesn't work anymore and fixing it is more expensive than buying the Ambient Beetle. Does anyone use the Beetle with a 788t and can share his user experience? Does it work well? Is the Tonmeister app comparable to the CL-WiFi app, when it comes to changing track/take names, metadata...? Thanks in advance Manuel
  4. Anyone using the ACN system with their 6 series since firmware update 3.1? ACN-ML / ACL204 / ACN-TL? My understanding is to get all the functionality of the ACN system you'd need boxes on all cameras and recorders(?) - however if you just had 1 box (jammed from the recorder) and used to provide stable TC to (1) camera (like you may use a tentacle-sync) what functionality, from a boxes both ends (full system), is still retained? Eg. If the box is on the camera and my browsing device is in wifi range, can I enter audio metadata (or is it only taking metadata from what it is plugged into)?
  5. Just picked up a Master Lockit a couple weeks ago and shot this on my phone. Finally posted it. Please excuse the poor quality of the video! Been using the Master Lockit on a few jobs already and very pleased!
  6. We proudly present one of the biggest Firmware updates in our history.

  7. Dear Ambient Recording friends,we are happy to welcome another key player of our industry as new member to our ACN™ family. With the integration of RED Digital Cinema cameras into our metadata system, we now are able to provide camera information to script and post from the two most popular cinema camera manufacturers. Furthermore, syncing RED cameras with an ACL 204 now is plug-and-play. Additionally, we are proud to present the first manufacturer that has integrated the ACN OEM module, and to introduce great new accessories for the popular ACN-LS digi slate.Please visit us on IBC Hall 8C73 a
  8. Hey everyone, I'm curious to see if anyone is using the new Master Lockit to feed continuous jam to the Nomad in the sound bag, and whether or not the Master Lockit's own 2.4ghz transmission to other ACN lockits onset are causing interference with various zaxnet commands, given that they'd be physically so close together in the bag? Cheers! Eren
  9. Syncing Mad Max - Fury Road I had the pleasure to do an interview with Ben Osmo, Production Sound Mixer and Oliver Machin, Sound Department Coordinator & Vehicle FX Recordist about their work on Mad Max - Fury Road in the desert of Nambia, Africa. Three units with up to 12 cameras worked simultaniously, sometimes up to 7km (4.35 mi.) away from each other while driving with 60-90 km/h (37- 56 mph). The air filled with desert sand containing metallic parts that drastically decreased wireless range, while the VFX dpt wanted the camera to use the UTC time information from the GPS satellites t
  10. Hi everybody, Today is a good day, ... After long hours, weeks, months, and years we finally launched our all new website. www.ambient.de/en Only one part of the page still needs to be fed and I would heartily invite you to help us filling it. What are the most frequently asked questions you have to face when dealing with timecode, sync, boom poles, underwater recordings, or any other Ambient product? We would like to collect them all and make our FAQ section a useful source of advice to anybody needing help in the field. We'll add videos, active PDFs and interactive tutorials in the future t
  11. Since 1st of March our ASF-1 hydrophone is finally shipping! Right now we do our best to cope with all the backorders as soon as possible. As underwater is the most demanding environment for gear, we thoroughly tested the ASF-1 all over Europe. Please enjoy our short videos, documenting some tests of the last months. The videos show how we continuously increased the demands on the ASF-1. So let's begin with the first test in the German Alps, more videos will follow: https://vimeo.com/123313111
  12. Please meet our new Tiny Mike Sets http://vimeo.com/84658414 Now including a Rycote InVision and our sophisticated QBS More information about the new sets can be found here in our newsletter, or here on our website...
  13. So I have been following very closely the development of that miracle 'all together' metadata protocol from various companies, and after the release of the new products from Ambient, TimecodeBuddy and Denecke, i believe a discussion is in order, hopefully even with a bit of input from the manufacturers themselves. So firstly we have a the TimecodeBuddy system. Some of you already using it, and apparently quite robust (900mhz and 2.4g transmission). Now they partnered with MovieSlate and Denecke. I love the fact that you can send metadata to the slate and other MovieSlate apps, but I don't
  14. Ambient Insider's tips Recent requests from the USA and China showed that although frequently used in Europe some of our products and small workflow helpers are rather unknown to the majority of our community. Thus we would like to take the opportunity and introduce you to our "insider's tips" which have been on the market already for quite some time. VSLOT As prosumer as well as digital cinema cameras nowadays offer at least broadcast compatible video quality they mostly cut back professional audio features and inputs. With the VSLOT you can add a professional stereo slot-in rec
  15. I'm trying to feed my slate with off speed TC for a music video playback (via Comteks). The display though shows/updates to my numbers very spottily - and the reception LED mostly stays on red no matter what levels I'm sending. I have the slate on READ (dip 4 + 5 are on) and also have dips 1,2,3 as off, off, on - according to the manual. Anybody know of ways to trick the slate into behaving....? Thank you, Karl
  16. I was just going through the menus on a Tiny Lockit and came across the PPF setting. What would you use the PPF trigger for in a typical sound workflow? I am not quite understanding what scenario it would be used in? Is it more of a setting that would be used by camera guys to trigger mulitple cameras to roll or to trigger a repeatable head to start its move? Also, with the Tiny Lockit you can adjust the PPF rate? Any ideas what that does? Thanks
  17. Three New Products at IBC 2013 Lockit Slate - Lockit Script App - QS-Mini This was the IBC, again. Time moves fast when you are busy, and our last year just passed at lightning speed. After one year of extensive development we would like to present the latest results of our work. With the new Lockit Slate and Lockit Script App as well as the integration of our time code in the Adobe Prelude live logger app we continue to upgrade our time code series to the newest Ambient Clockit Network technology. Whereas the QS-Mini boompole brings our premium range to customers who prefer shor
  18. http://vimeo.com/71959025 With firmware 3.1 for the Tiny Lockit and the Lockit we added a few exceedingly powerful features. "Use your Lockit to send the camera time code to your recorder without the fear of wireless dropouts!" The new software integrates a TC transceiver mode to the units using the already existing ACN network hardware. So without additional equipment your Lockit is now a fully functional time code transmitter or receiver. Thanks to the internal generator running in the background, TC dropouts are a relic of the past. "No need to tune your Lockits with the rental o
  19. Ambient Lectromote now for FREE We won't continue to develop our Lectromote App. As our software engineering team is beyond their capacities already with our hardware products and New Endian is doing a good job with their LectroRM app we decided to stop development of our Lectromote App. You can now enjoy the basic functionality for free. Best Regards Your Ambient Team http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lectromote/id429924228?mt=8#
  20. Munich, Germany 4th of April 2013 Ambient Recording goes Premium with the all new QS boompole For more than 20 years Ambient Recording has produced professional carbon fiber boompoles. The tubes used for our products are not off the shelf items but specially manufactured to our own specification using upscale yet still affordable Hi-Q modulus carbon fibers. This high quality soon made Ambient the leading manufacturer for professional booms in many parts of the world. Now we wanted to go one step beyond and construct our masterpiece. The QS boompole is handmade out of Pre-preg
  21. It was rarely so relieving to post that we are finally shipping... After our first production line (incl. the 3 QS poles shown in the USA) failed our quality tests because they were not as stiff as the prototypes but "only" as stiff as a QP, we suffered from the biggest flood in history. All streets to and from our boom factory were blocked for weeks. Luckily our facility is on a hill near Passau, so it was not directly affected by the flood. Today we finally could start the assembling of the first QS poles and start shipping. We are very sorry for anybody who had to wait and we
  22. You want to come to NAB and haven't got a ticket, yet? Be our guest! NAB 2013 8th- 11th of April Las Vegas, Convention Center Booth # C2059 & C3027 Visit us on America's biggest broadcast show. For the first time Ambient Recording will be represented twice at NAB. So you can meet us of course at our own booth all new and repositioned at C2059 and at the beautiful booth of our recently installed US distributor Redding Audio at C3027. Meet us, talk about our gear, experience, nerd stuff, suggestions or just chat about the weather. At NAB you can expect nothing less than one w
  23. @AmbientRec I just took a swift snapshot of the first ACM-204 Lockit Mount before I disassembled it again, to ship it to Redding Audio USA. The ACM-204 can be screwed to your aluminum Lockit within seconds (4screws). For anybody not owning one of the new anniversary edition Lockits, don't be disappointed, The ACM-TL will be shipped soon, too. It will be delivered with screws for the Tiny Lockit and an adhere tape to be fixed to all your other Clockit devices. Why not screwing, too? That's because we are using self-cutting screws for our plastic bodies. Thus, unscrewing th
