Hi Tentacle

Is the Tentacle system completely compatible with the Zoom F8 – including metadata, Ambient ACN, the iOs apps for Zoom F8 and Ambient?




Hi Ulrich

Not interested in international law ….

But I am interested in a good well-designed and cost-effective system to sell into Australia and SE Asia along with our pro sound equipment.  I know there’s a couple of other manufacturers from other countries, but Germany has a long-standing history of good design and engineering over

may decades.  What would you say Tentacle has so far that’s better than Ambient?  And BTW, do you have an exclusive or non-exclusive dealer in Australia?

Hi Soundequip,

sounds a bit like you are going to sue us when Tentacle is only 99.9% compatible? ?

Ok, seriously. Tentacle does industry standard SMPTE-12M Timecode so it is compatible with every device that uses SMPTE-12M including the Zoom F8. It even works with the competitor brand you named. Only ACN is a proprietary wireless protocol we do not support.
