Tentacle SYNC E & ORIGINAL timecode generators can be started in two operating modes.
In this mode your Tentacle device is waiting to be jam-synced by an external timecode source through the 3.5mm jack. The Tentacle SYNC E or ORIGINAL is not outputting timecode. Pull down the slide switch shortly (approx. 1 sec.). The status LED is flashing red now.
In this mode your Tentacle is outputting timecode. The Tentacle fetches the „Time of Day“ from the build-in RTC (Real Time Clock), loads it into the timecode generator and starts generating timecode. Pull down the slide switch until the Status LED is flashing green (> 3 sec.).
