Does Tentacle have to record to both channels, or can it send only time over 1 channel?

I’d like to be able to use the second XLR input on a┬áSony FS100 for a separate mic, and am wondering if I hookup a tentacle to one of the XLR’s will the second input be unusable? In other words will I have to set input 1 to record to both channel in order to use tentacle sync since it outputs both timecode and reference audio? Or can I have the tentacle just output timecode to use on one channel, and still be able to┬árecord audio with my own mic on the other channel?


you can. But do a test to hear how much crosstalk you get. SMPTE TC is a nasty signal.
