  1. Here's what I have: Ambient Lockit 202CT and a Tascam DR-701D recorder. Here's what I want: I want a LTC audio signal that is drift free (relative to the wordclock) of the BWF in the DR-701D. Why I want this: I need to make an 8 hour continuous audio recording that can be easily(ish) synced in post to 5+ cameras that are all turning on and off at random. Each camera will record the LTC to an audio track. The duration of each video track will be so short that the difference between each cameras clock and the wordclock/LTC is sub frame. Plan A: If I took the

  3. How reliable are the timecode generators for Tentacle Syncs? Would it be safe to use in a multi-camera setup if three cameras are hardwired to mixer generating timecode while the fourth camera is using a jammed Tentacle Sync? Thanks for any insight and help.
  4. I have made a (hopefully) useful list of different connections that popluar cameras have for jamming timecode and for scratch tracks etc.. For the Full List visit: http://wp.me/p2Vzd6-fk at www.soundrolling.com If you want the newest cameras including Amira and Sony F7 then get the offline PDF version that you can use offline : http://soundrolling.com/sound-products/camera-timecode-tutorials/ Arri Alexa (and all versions of it like Alexa XT.. isn't that nice of them!) see on http://wp.me/p2Vzd6-fk RED Scarlet / RED Epic / RED Epic Dragon see on http://wp.me/p2Vzd6-fk
  5. I just got a used :wave, but I'm having a hell of a time operating it as the master in an RF network. My other Timecode Systems devices (2 Ultrasync Ones) are configured as RF slaves on the correct RF channel, but they don't connect to the network unless I hold them within an inch of the :wave. Any further than that and they lose the RF connection. I have updated the firmware on all devices and reconfigured everything several times, to no avail. Has anyone else had an issue like this? (I'm hoping it's fixable with a new antenna or something.)
  6. We are excited to announce our newest timecode generator the X2 at just $199.

  7. I have been running around with the Zoom F4, and it's cool how much it does for the price point. Has anyone had some major issues with it out of the box? I'm a whole number behind with the firmware, but didn't read any of my issues in the known issues literature for the updates. A big one is getting the wrong channel PFL like it's bleeding through or routed improperly. But there is no way to re-route it the way it was working. Two tracks also shows up as a stereo track in Premiere even though they are both centered and should be recording polyphonic files. If I arm a third tra
  8. I have read the TS-C manual a million times. For some reason I'm just not understanding how to change the clap hold so that it will display the timecode, and not the date. Can someone explain how to change the clap hold, and also if there is supplemental help to understanding the TS-C other than Denecke's manual? Update: I've been informed that this can only be changed on my mixer side of things. When I head to my Time Code Jam pressing the TC key twice, and then I select jam date and jam time, then I sync my slate, it will hold time code only after the clap. That's what I w
  9. Would an absolute timecode based on UTC time be a viable option? Using UTC (Universal Time Coordinated, the worldwide used date/time of day reference) as absolute timecode would allow to operate any device totally independently anywhere in the world while keeping a very precise uniform timecode. With a GNSS-disciplined precision oscillator it would be possible to keep absolute time sync better than +/- 3 milliseconds per day even if the GPS/GLONASS/... satellite signal is lost. With automatic GNSS resync a precision better than +/- 1 ms is easily possible. The drif
  10. Hello Community, I hope this is the right place to ask this. I have run into a bit of a problem with one of my recent projects, due a rookie mistake on my part. I recorded the location sound for a 30 minute short film on a Zoom H6. Since this recorder has no built in Time-code functionalities I recorded the time-code from a Tiny Lockit onto one of the channels as LTC, syncing with the camera every few hours. The Tiny Lockit was set to 25 fps. The camera however was recording in 24 fps. Now I am wondering: is there anyway to convert the LTC audio files to 24 fps somehow?
  11. Hi, all. After starting a new show I have been getting feedback from post that the TC is not being consistent. I have put lockit box and tentacle synch on the cameras and that seemed to fix the problem. I had a look at the software update page in Zaxcom just to make sure I was running the up to date software and I saw that I had v7.57t and the latest was 7.56 I updated the software to the recommended version and now it seems to be worse than before with TC being more of an issue than before. I have searched for the 7.57t version and I couldn't see it anywhere. I'm prett

  13. I couldnt see a specific thread about Pluraleyes but I could see a lot of very sceptical posts about the softwares ability from around 2111/2012. I have worked with a lot of people (editors) who absolutely swear by it and when I do 5D work I can just give them the audio files and nothing else (it helps if times of day matches a bit) and I've not had wines or gripes. I did do one job here in ZA for an American company who insisted I got a big ass SD mixer (as well as top of the range everything which was hired at great expense) and we shot on some bigger Cannon cameras and the time code kept dr
  14. Hey folks, I recently saw this slate on consignment at a local camera shop, and I was wondering if any of you out there recognised it. it is fairly inexpensive, but it may be a case of too good to be true. I've done my own search, and have had no luck finding anything in current, or legacy products that even look close. It has a unibody design with an indent in the back as a handle. The T/C input is a 3.5mm plug. it takes 6 AA batteries with an opening panel on the back. There seems to be no brand name of any kind anywhere on it, control wise, there are 4 colored buttons on the back
  15. I don't do it very often, but sometimes I convert BWAV files to mp3 for transcription. I have yet to find mp3 conversion software that will carry over timecode information from BWAV files into the mp3 tags. I know from experience that recording directly to mp3 from a Sound Devices recorder will spread all kinds of useful metadata-like information into mp3 tag fields. Timecode, track names, etc... But doing this after the fact via conversion software would be handy. Now that I've gone Nomad I'm curious to see how the mp3 recording option will handle metadata. It is yet-to-be-implemented c

  17. there have been a number of useful discussions here concerning wireless transmission of timecode, but i've not been able to find an answer to the following question … what are the consequences in post production of time of day timecode that has a timecode "jump" in the clip? case in point: in my quest to make life a little easier for my hard-working associates in the camera department, i have in the past considered ways of using the camera hop as a timecode device, and eliminate the bulk of the sb3 box. the lectro d4, for example, could be used as a stereo hop, with the third channel bein
  18. Dear sound community, As timecode and sync technology is our passion, for many years we wanted to develop easily accessible, short-subject educational videos that break down and explain these modern production elements. Ambient University provides the information and instruction for low budget productions as well as the most sophisticated setups all around the world. Our videos about timecode and synchronization provide in-depth background information, while other videos demonstrate how to use that knowledge in the field. This video library includes step-by-step tutorial video
  19. Hello! Yesterday I did a shoot with Red Scarlet. I tried to jam the scarlet with my 633, but it would not jam. I set the 633 to free run, and went into setting->TC and set it to "brain", but it would not jam. I dident find the different TC setting rec run, free run etc. Can anyone tell me what I did wrong? Thanks.
  20. I was wondering if you do a stereo line cable for a XFR300 and input audio on one channel and timecode on the other, can it accept both or you have to select either?
  21. Hi all, I'm wondering whether any of these cables would allow me to jam the F8 and the Arri Alexa mini. First time working with both. Which one you would recommned should be the master TC machine? I'm aware of the sync issues but there is no budget for lockit boxes so I'm thinking in jamming every few hours and when camera and/or F8 are switched off. Here are the links to the cables and pics: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/spanish/c/product/423968-REG/Sound_Devices_XL_LB2_XL_LB2_31_LEMO_5.html/?gclid=CLGq9f3QmMwCFVAvgQodMWEDnw http://www.bhphotovideo.com/spanish/c/product/1021813-R
  22. Has anyone figured out how to read the timecode off of the DR-701D Tascam? I am using it in the field and the AE is not having success finding timecode in the AVID timeline. Is there a trick to find the timecode? Upon import, AVID is reading just a file starting at hour 1. The Tascam is reading TC off of a Tentacle Sync, the "TC" display is on and it is displaying running TC on the TC menu page. What menu setting am I, or the AE, not getting right?

  24. Hey Guys, Just a quick question, I have been reading about on set music playback in the forms, and I couldn't find how exactly to make a Timecode Audio Track in Pro Tools. What do you guys use to generate that audio? Third Party plug in? In Pro Tools method? Standard audio files that you use over and over? (I have PT9 on a iMac.) Thanks guys
