  • 1Description

The compact, lightweight Tentacle Sync E Single Set includes two timecode generators, and two downloadable Tentacle Sync Studio software license (macOS). This successor to the Tentacle Sync features Bluetooth setup and monitoring, enabling you to easily view frame-accurate readings on your iOS or Android smartphone device. Use this updatable generator to extend Bluetooth-broadcast timecode to virtually any mobile device. The Sync E also features a locking clamp for its 3.5mm cable, ensuring compatibility with a wide array of devices without the need for an adapter.

The Tentacle E functions as a master clock, or to jam-sync to an external timecode source.

The Tentacle E's integrated, high-quality mic enables you to record both timecode and ambient sound simultaneously.

Each Tentacle E TC generator is powered by a built-in LiPo battery with a runtime lasting up to 35 hours. The battery charges via the unit's USB Type-C interface. A handy industrial-strength hook-and-loop surface is built into the back side of each box for secure mounting to your rig.

    Tentacle Sync TE2 reviews

    Sync E Timecode Generator with Bluetooth (Dual Set) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have Must have if you are using single camera and separate audio or mullticam. �just received 4 Tentacle Sync E. It is absolutely joy to work with these products. They are much smaller than I was expecting. I shoot Wedding with multi cam + separate audio recorder and it’s a nightmare in post. Yes, there are other software in post such as pluraleyes which suppose to synchronize your video/audio footage but they don’t work properly all the time...specially when you bring in footage in post from one camera from different settings and other camera have different scratch audio and my recorder (MixPre 6) have audio from DJ board...software get confused and I end up manually syncing audio/video which was very much time consuming and big headache. With Tentacle devices, everything gets synced in literally seconds and weather I do editing or send somewhere else to edit...it’s a piece of cake...A MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE WHO USES MULTI-CAM SHOOT� PLUS GET THERE AUDIO RECORDING SEPARATELY� Even if you use one camera & separate audio recording...it will help you tremendously. Totally worth the investment.� Bluetooth works flawlessly and I can check from across the room all the devices connected and synced...placement of this product is not an issue and using with any gimbal is easy. It is extremely lightweight.� I use on Canon C100 M2, C300 M2 and Nikon D850 as well as SoundDevices MixPre 6.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! So far they've worked flawlessly.� We usually have a 2 camera shoot with external recorder.� We sync everything first thing in the morning, and so far, everything has been right on. Saves a ton of time in editing.� Highly recommend it for anyone with external audio and one or more cameras.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timecode sync in Easy Mode The good: The Tentacle Sync E is SIMPLE to use and each device is accurate. The Tentacle Timecode utility for the PC is simple to use and converts timecode sound to timecode file metadata. When used with two or more cameras and/or sound devices that support timecode-in, there is no drift detectable at a 23.978 frame rate over a five hour test. Tested with XDCA-FS7, Canon C100, Sound Devices MixPre-10T. The Good-enough. When used with cameras as a sound timecode (eg. Canon C100, Nikon D810 do not have a timecode port), there is no random drift but there is one frame that lags the synchronized cameras about once per second. I believe this is latency in the C100 and D810 sound circuitry and not due to the software conversion. I cannot notice the lag during normal playback. See below for the test setup. Test setup: FS7 timecode sync-out to Tentacle Sync E (1). Four other Tentacle Sync E devices synchronized to the FS7 via Tentacle Sync device (1). C300 timecode sync-in with device (2). Sound Device MixPre 10T jam synced with device (3). Three Sennheiser E100 lavalier mic input on channels 1-3. Two Azden lavalier mics input on channel 9 (AUX) via mixer. C100 sound synced with device (4). D810 sound synced with device (5). Andriod LTC Timecode Generator App generating timecode display and audio for 23.978 frame rate. (Note* exact accuracy of this app is not important since each device records the same video and/or audio). Test duration 5 hours at 90 degrees F. Camera exposure nominal. Sound timecode converted to file metadata using Tentacle Timecode software utility for the PC. Sound Devices SD recorded output file imported into Premiere Pro. Multicamera project created using timecode metadata from FS7, C300, C100, D810, MixPre-10T. Frame by frame examination of beginning, middle and ending performed in Adobe Premiere CC 2018.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So easy and fast to set-up The Bluetooth feature is great, so easy to jam-sync. I bought them for a C100, but I have yet to figure it out because the Canon C100 does not have TC in, so I need the audio track. I'm sure it is something I'm doing wrong & I'll figure it out. On a camera with TC in the Tentacle is flawless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow The size of a Canon battery, app controlled and monitored, internal battery lasts all day if not days, very simple and easy. Thanks for the upgrade Tentacle...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective. This is my first time attempting to use timecode. I purchased the Tentacle Sync E Dual Set as well as the BNC to 3.5mm adapter cable from Tentacle Sync. Within a few minutes after opening the box, I had both units synced-up with my Sound Devices MixPre-10T. I installed the Tentacle App on my Android and renamed the units and confirmed all the info was correct (FPS, mic/line level, etc) It was easy enough to plug into the 3.5mm input on both of my cameras, set the input level, and record. I downloaded the "Tentacle Timecode Tool" for my Windows PC and converted the audio timecode to meta-timecode and Premiere Pro picked it right up and created the Multicamera Sequence. I didn't realize how tiny these little units really are. I imagined them to be the size of a wireless lav transmitter but they are roughly half that size. And Tentacle includes some nice extras in the package... different colored bands to help distinguish the units apart, extra hook-and-loop fastener patches for several devices, USB charging cables, 3.5mm to 3.5mm stereo cables for each unit, a clip for each cable (very nice feature, btw) and a cool 2-sided zippered storage bag, very convenient. I keep the Tentacles zipped up in one side, and all the little extra stuff zipped up in the second side, very neat and organized. It's a great little product. I've only tested it in my living room but I'm sure it will come in extremely handy for me soon, and I'm planning to purchase another pair soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes timecode sync super easy I recently picked up a set of these devices to sync my mix pre6 to my camera over extended interviews. The set up couldn’t be easier with the blue tooth app and they do an excellent job of keeping audio and video devices ib sync.
