Charité intensiv - Station 43
TRACK E in a minimalistic documentary setup
What does everyday life look like in a Covid-19 intensive care unit? This is the question that director Carl Gierstorfer and co-author Mareike Müller set out to answer in their mini-series "Charité intensiv - Station 43“. What was from day one an emotionally demanding project soon, however, also became a technically challenging task.

Supply Chain Difficulties
Production progresses only sluggishly
As you may have noticed, factories can burn down, container ships can get stuck, too little of everything is available, everyone wanting much more of everything and on top of all that we are still in one of the worst pandemics. One fact that makes it all more bearable is that we're not in this alone. We have fantastic new staff to handle all of this and we can ship many many orders every day. Still, we are behind and can't build TRACK E and SYNC E devices as fast as we would like to due to difficult component sourcing. So thank you all for your support and understanding for the delivery delays.
Stay healthy, happy & busy!

We didn't sleep during winter break
After this busy last year, we have to take it a little easier at the beginning of the new year. But we'll be shipping our beloved TRACK E and SYNC E units again in about 2 weeks. But in the meantime we have some news on the software front. There is now the Tentacle Float Converter for macOS and Windows. With this free tool you can easily convert the 32-bit audio files of the Track E to 24-bit if your own editing software can't read 32-bit float files. Additionally there is an update for the Tentacle Sync Studio (Mac) as well as for the Timecode Tool (Windows). The Sync Studio is now ready for macOS Big Sur & Apple M1 silicon computers. The Timecode Tool doesn’t need a license activation anymore and can simply be downloaded for free.

Thank you for all your orders
2nd batch is coming in January
We are thrilled, exhausted, relieved but mostly really happy that the release and the shipping of the first batch of our TRACK E timecode audio recorder is done. We can't put into words how much we appreciate your numerous orders and feedback on the TRACK E. Now that the first batch is sold out and many orders are still coming in, we want to let you know, that we are getting everything ready to manufacture the next batch. This will be available in January. And please check our worldwide reseller list: some of them still have TRACK E audio recorders in stock.

Are you ready?
The first batch of Track E is now available
Alright - this took longer than expected. And we are pretty sure that you all are excited to finally hear more details about our new pocket-sized TRACK E Timecode Audio Recorder. And therefore we like to keep it brief.
But before we get to the actual news, we would like to thank you for being loyal and supporting customers. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without your ideas, kind feedback and support. THANK YOU!
We are happy to announce that the first batch is in production and can be ordered from now on at our resellers and in our online store as well.

Summer is over - Octo-ber can begin
The last weeks before the Track E is released
While some of us are busy assembling the SYNC E time code generators, packing orders and answering your questions, the others are busy programming the new setup app, preparing the workstations and ordering the last components for the TRACK E, all the things on our to-do list.
We are happy that after these months all threads finally come together. In a few weeks we will start with the production of the first TRACK E audio recorders. This is not only possible thanks to our hard-working team, but also thanks to our great group of beta testers who took the audio recorder TRACK E to the Alps, to reality shows, podcast productions and much more.

TRACK E - just around the corner
The state of affairs
Dear Tentacle friends, Well, what a few months that has been! It’s safe to say, none of us could have seen that coming! We hope you’re keeping well – as we are. We had intended to launch TRACK E by the summer and now with Corona taking a backseat, many of you are already in production and want to get your hands on our new Tentacle family member – and trust us: we want this too!

Just choose one of your synced Tentacle Sync E units as a source and get a full screen, frame accurate timecode display on your mobile device. Now you can add any custom information to your display as well. This tool is not only helpful for the camera and sound department, everyone on set who needs timecode for their notes like Script or wardrobe can use it.
