The Ambient Beetle (ACN-BT)

Bluetooth Dongle

The ACN-BT „Beetle“ establishes a wireless link for serial communication between selected apps and devices using latest Bluetooth 4.0 LE technology (*).

Initial support is strictly limited to Sound Devices 788T recorders in use with the TonMeister app (**).

Designed specifically as a reliable, cost and power effective alternative option to the CL-WiFi remote (***) this acombination serves as a comprehensive remote control surface for the recorder including in-depth metadata editing and sophisticated sound report generation/output.

Thanks to the option to interconnect to various devices via interchangeable cable connection the unit is readily prepared to upcoming feature upgrades and support a growing number of units. Power and configuration is determined by the connected cable alone delivering true plug&play experience.
