Tentacle Sync Es wont jam with Mix Pre 3 mk ii at 29.97nd nor 29.97df
I cannot get my Sync E’s to jam with Mixpre 3 mk II which I am using as my master clock. I can get all frame rates of 23.98, 24, 25, 30, 30df to work without any problems. I have switched out cables to ensure not a bad cable, but regardless of what I do, I cannot get the Sync E’s to jam when the timecode is set to 29.97 either DF or ND. Sync E firmware is 2.00 and Mixpre3 mk II firmware is 5.01 (all latest versions available).
No, could not get the Sync E’s to ever take the TC from Mixpre3 at those frame rates, however, I came up with a work around. I jammed the two Sync E’s together using the iPhone app, then I set the TC mode on the Mixpre3 to Free Run mode, then jammed the TC generator of the Mixpre 3 off the tentacle sync E via the Aux/Mix port. Works like a charm. Just a bit more work to set up the menu on the Mix Pre 3 that way. I will likely save it as a preset.
