Tentacle Set Up for Indie Feature
Hello, I have a few questions for those more “in the know” than I.
I’m preparing for a indie feature shoot in January and are looking for a cheap timecode solution and I have recommended Tentacle to producers, and seen as I’m editing, I get a big say in what we use!
I just have a few questions. We’ll be using the Zoom H6 for our audio recording and we’ll be connecting more than one mic at one point. Sometimes a condenser, a lapel, boom, or all three at once.

- Will I be able to connect the Tentacle Sync to one of the XLR inputs (or to a 3.5mm jack) to record the timecode while using all/some of the microphones mentioned above? Will this work to the best effect? Seen as I know the H6 records each audio source in it’s own file.
- We’ll be using FCP X to edit the feature and using Sync N Link to sync the audio with picture. Has anyone tested this application with the Tentacle Syncs? Does it identify the timecode across the separately recorded files?
- If none of the above work, would I be able to compile the audio files in a program such as Wave Agent into one multichannel file with the timecode track and then disable it in the edit? Would that option work?
I apologise for the multiple questions, want to check to see if others have done anything above to avoid spending money on something that won’t work that well.
