How to sync Zoom F8 to Tentacle or sync Tentacle to Zoom F8
Hi – please can you advise (A) how to sync the Zoom F8 to a TentacleSync Tentacle and (B) how to sync a TentacleSync Tentacle to the Zoom F8. Tried every setting and failed. For example, when starting Tentacle in Red-Mode and connecting it to the recorder’s Time Code Out BNC, the Tentacle’s light starts to flash red in a steady rhythm, but never changes to green to indicate that it has synced and switched to Green-Mode. I have tried setting the F8 to Internal free run mode for that and have tried setting it to External mode in order to try to sync it to a Tentacle. Luck with any of those attempts.
With regards to the timecode being offset by 1 frame; it’s (fortunately) merely a display issue.
I’ve tested this extensively and also discussed with Tentacle Support.
Don’t worry about it. It won’t affect your workflow.
