Introducing The Ambient Lockit+


For over 30 years, Ambient Timecode has been synonymous with precision and reliability. Like the Lockit, the Lockit+ provides all timecode and Sync formats and full ACN compatibility.

We called it Lockit+ because of its modular design and the many added values.

The Lockit+ combines the state of the art, high-accuracy Ambient Lockit Timecode and Sync technology with advanced metadata management options to improve your workflow between set and editing.

It’s the successor of both the MasterLockit and MasterLockitPlus. A lot of user input has gone into further development to make the Lockit+ the true flagship of the Lockit family

The Power of Plus

It’s a highly accurate Timecode and Sync Generator

+ Modular Hardware designed to be elegantly operated both from the sound cart and sound bag

The Lockit+ is designed to serve different situations on set or in the studio. With the Standard Extension it can be elegantly operated both from the sound cart and sound bag. In future there will be different extensions available. 

+ WiFi Access for advanced control and monitoring

The built-in server spans a local WiFi, giving users browser-based access to all the Lockit+ features via mobile device or computer. The web interface gives access to advanced generator settings and monitoring of all Lockit devices within the ACN.

+ Frequency Scanning

Plug the separately available antenna into a USB port of the Lockit+ to perform a full frequency scan. In the web interface you get concrete suggestions for available frequencies for your transmitters and receivers.

+ Metadata Hub between cameras and our LockitScript App

The Lockit+ can extract technical metadata from compatible cameras to broadcast it via WiFi to the Ambient LockitScript App for script supervisors.

+ Frame-accurate lens metadata processing for Cooke /i protocol

The Lockit+ stores key Cooke /i lens metadata frame-accurately in an open file format – at the same time it makes the data accessible live via WiFi or Ethernet.

+ Remote Control for Sound Devices 6 and 7 series recorders

+ More Connectors

While the front of the Lockit+ offers the same two outputs you know from the Lockit (Blue TC & ACN Connector / Yellow TC & Sync Connector) – the Standard Extension provides additional connections for different setups. In total the Lockit+ with Standard Extension has:

  • 2x Blue TC & ACN Connector
  • 1x Yellow TC & Sync Connector
  • USB-A connector (Frequency Scanning Antenna)
  • USB-C connector (Camera Metadata / Powering)
  • USB-C connector for Midi TC
  • Hirose (Powering)

+ Flexible Powering

The Lockit+ can be powered by 6 to 24 Volts DC via a Hirose 4-pin connector or via the USB-C socket. 

It is also possible to run the Lockit+ only with the two included BX1 batteries. In basic operation the batteries will last for up to 4 hours.

Capturing the sound of disappearing glaciers – Bubblebee Industries

 Do you know what a glacier sounds like? 

Sound recordist Thomas Rex Beverly describes his groundbreaking work in one of the world’s most awe-inspiring wildernesses, Greenland. 

“I assumed they would make some sounds, but they were surprising in a whole lot of ways. They sing, and I find it amazing. They are like slow motion thunderstorms, and you can’t help but be awed if you get to witness their beauty and natural power first hand.”

A charity initiative with Zeigermann_Audio and Schoeps

In support of ‘Spendenmikrofon’, a new charity initiative by Zeigermann_Audio and Schoeps to celebrate the 10,000th Schoeps CMIT 5, Bubblebee Industries donated one of their Spacer Kits in Chroma Key blue as matching wind protection.

“We are big fans of the Spacer Windshield System by Bubblebee: perfect fur, sonically transparent and still very effective as a windshield. So it’s all the nicer that Bubblebee Industries has provided a blue spacer kit especially for our donation microphone and thus generously supports our campaign. Now you can always see the donation microphone clearly. Thank you Bubblebee Industries!” – Christina Bjørni Wölke, Head of Rental – Zeigermann_Audio GmbH

The new campaign throughout 2022 will see the 10,000th Schoeps CMIT 5 available to rent from Zeigermann_Audio, with all proceeds going to charity. Zeigermann_Audio will be matching this amount, and Schoeps will also be matching the rental income to help organisations in urgent need of financial support.

To learn more about the campaign and the organisations being supported, visit Zeigermann_Audio’s website here.

If you’d like your own Spacer Kit in Chroma Key blue, green, or red, they’re available for special order. Contact Jose at or on +27 (0)87-551 1034.


Bubblebee Industries – The Invisible Lav Covers – Now available in three colours

Since we first launched the product, we’ve been continuously asked about producing them in colours other than black too. We’re happy to say we’ve perfected the colours and as of next week, new shipments of BBI-ILC-30 will include the new boxes, with 3x black, 3x beige, and 3x white covers.

These covers are reusable 3-4 times each, so the BBI-ILC-30 pack is good for 30 mounts minimum.

The Invisible LAV Covers allow you to easily mount and hide your Lavalier microphones directly on the skin or on clothes. 

Each package of Invisible LAV Covers consists of 9 pieces of mesh fabric and 30 pieces of our high quality Invisible LAV Tape.

Key Features:

  • Optimal for use under clothes
  • Stick Directly to the Skin or Clothes
  • Hypoallergenic / Allergy Tested Tape
  • 3×3 reuseable fabric pieces
  • 30 Pieces of High Quality Tape
  • Designed in Denmark by Sound Lovers, for Sound Lovers

The transparent double-sided Invisible Lav Tape keeps your microphone and fur fabric solid in place on one side and sticks directly to the skin or to clothes on the other side allowing the microphone to be safely and securely mounted almost anywhere. It’s all about being creative: under the collar, next to a buttonhole, or under the clothes in the chest area.

The tape also has a small piece cut out in the middle of the tape, which is to be saved and used for fixing.

While the fabric can be used up to four times, the tape must be replaced after each use. Since the Invisible Lav Covers package comes with 30 pieces of tape, you will be able to do 30 mounts per pack.
