    I just picked up my first RED pre-amp solution, a Sound Devices MixPre-3 II

    I was excited to use the auto record trigger, then quickly realized that's through HDMI. What solution exists now or in the future that will allow KOMODO to interface with my MixPre-3 II for auto-trigger?

    Why would some one want to use an external recorder if you can record in synch to the camera file?

    The Sonosax looks amazing, Patrick-- appreciate the recommendation. But the MixPre-3 can serve the same function, acting only as a preamp to the camera, and it costs half as much (here in the US, anyway). The option to use the MixPre-3 as a standalone recorder is a bonus, but I'd agree with you that it's easier to just record the audio to file in camera.

    One other benefit of the Sonosax is the size, of course; while the MixPre is quite compact, it gets much larger if you mount L-series batteries on the back (the sled allows two batteries, but I doubt you could use both if it's mounted below a Komodo). I've never tried powering my MixPre from a v-mount battery, but I suppose there's probably a solution that allows that.

    Anyone come up with a good method to connect a Tentacle Sync up to a Komodo? I have the BNC to Ext that Red made available but I have no good way to adapt it to connect to the Tentacle.

    I guess the best option would be to get a TRS to 9-pin lemo cable made?

    Is the same possible with MixPre-3 ii and Komodo? How do you get TC out from Mixpre?

    Not sure if this would work.

    I have a Mix-Pre 6 and Gemini + Komodo now. I will be looking to pick up some tentacle syncs and will be looking to figure out a solution to connect to Komodo using some sort of EXT breakout cable or the EXT base expander module. Any one else cross this bridge yet?

    To keep everything simple and compatible in my world, I’ll probably just have a custom cable made that is just two BNC female ends for TC IN & OUT.

    Another possible option is the Sonosax SX-M2D2 https://www.audiosense.be/en/sonosax-sx-m2d2.html with Remote Audio stereo cable https://www.trewaudio.com/product/remote-audio-casdtd/

    It's certainly small, but no onboard recording.

    Using the 3.5mm stereo output, select that option first in the menu.

    Yes, if you ever ever need to disconnect the camera and recorder, then get a Tentacle Sync E to keep always on the camera itself! A simple velcro patch is all you need to use.
