Tentacle Apps

Setup App - 
getting started with Tentacle Sync

The mobile setup app (iOS and Android) is the foundation of you working with Tentacle Sync. Now it provides you with even more flexibility and options for your Tentacle devices TRACK E and SYNC E: start & stop audio recordings, synchronize, monitor, check the sync status and configure your devices. When you set up your Tentacle devices TRACK E, SYNC E and ORIGINAL via USB (macOS and Windows), you can make firmware updates. The ORIGINAL timecode generator can be setup and monitored in the mobile setup app as well.

Recorder App -
timecode on the go with your mobile phone

Sometimes you don’t want to lug around a heavy audio recorder. So why not just use your iPhone to record audio with timecode? Our audio recorder app allows you to turn your phone into a quick and versatile recorder that records both the audio of the internal phone microphone and the timecode of a SYNC E transmitted via Bluetooth. Additionally, a suitable external microphone can be connected to the phone to further improve the audio quality. Ain't life great?

Timebar App -
visualize sync via Bluetooth

Wether you are working in continuity or need an easy way to display the current timecode for a clapper shoot – the timecode bar helps to stay up to date. The app simply displays the timecode of one of your SYNC E or TRACK E devices broadcasted via Bluetooth. As an additional feature the Tentacle Timebar app enables you now to synchronize your GoPro cameras ( from Hero 7 Black & higher). The synchronization is realized through a generated QR code from the app. The QR code generated with the Timebar app simply needs to be held in the GoPro's field of view. The camera then automatically recognizes the QR code and synchronizes its internal timecode generator to the displayed time. This makes it possible to visually synchronize GoPro cameras to the Tentacle Sync timecode. The timecode is stored as metadata in the GoPro files. The app is available for Android, iOS, macOS and Windows and the required GoPro Labs firmware is available on their website, both free of charge.
