Quick Set Up as RF Slave - SyncBac PRO

If you want your SyncBac PRO to have its timecode set by another device, such as another SyncBac PRO or a :pulse, set it to run as an RF Slave.

  1. Connect your SyncBac PRO to your GoPro HERO. For details, see Connect SyncBac PRO to a GoPro HERO4 or Connect SyncBac PRO to a GoPro HERO6.
  2. Switch your SyncBac PRO on (see Switch SyncBac PRO On and Off).
  3. Set the RF Country/Area.

    This is important as your SyncBac PRO has to be set to use the appropriate frequency range for your country.

  4. Set the Timecode Mode to RF Slave (see Set the Timecode Mode).

    This is important as it defines how your SyncBac PRO synchronises with other devices.

    Timecode devices use a master-slave relationship for synchronisation. If this concept is new to you, you can find explanations in Master and Slave Relationship.

  5. Set the RF Channel.

    The RF Channel defines which RF network your SyncBac PRO will be a member of, and therefore, which master or slaves it can communicate with.

When you have completed these steps, you have applied the minimum required settings for your SyncBac PRO in RF Slave mode. But to work with its attached GoPro HERO, the SyncBac PRO must first synchronise with a master device. If there is no master device in your RF network, you will need to set one up and make sure your SyncBac PRO is in range so that it can synchronise for the first time.
