Movie Slate App

2233 viewsSoftware


the app MovieSlate is a very well known iPad app for slating (+ many interesting extras).
It is possible as well to jamsync the app with compatible TC devices.

I tried if the app could read out the TC send by Tentacle but it did not work.

Does anybody have any experience with that … a workaround ?

There is a TC sample on their website to download :

Maybe someone of the Tentacle team can compare their TC with the one of this sample and finding out where the differences are.

It would be great if Tentacle could work with this app … feature request šŸ˜‰

Besides that I am a happy camper with the Tentacles on a c100m2 and Zoom h6 šŸ™‚




Hi Stefan,

Tentacle does work with apps like MovieSlate. You only need the right cable for this:

Due to technical reasons it is not possible to use the included iPhone Setup cable. But the cable above will do the job.


Vielen Dank Ulrich,

dann werde ich das Kabel mal bestellen šŸ™‚

Vg, Stefan


HI Ulrich,


just received the IOS cable, Movie slate TC plugin is installed, cant receive TC though cabling seems right and Level is set to MIC.

Any idea?



Hi colleagues. Are there any news regarding this? Iā€˜m about to dive right into movie slate. I definetely want my tentacles work with this app. Is it possible?

Thanks, Andreas


Are you aware that they might not be frame accurate as every model of smartphone has different display latency?
