Sync Peep Syncing
« on: January 04, 2014, 02:59:09 PM »
There has been a lot of discussion about the best way to sync audio for ML raw with an external recording device, and lately I have been experimenting with using the sync beeps with a wireless transmitter. 

Over the summer, I filmed a project where we used ML raw, and clap slated every single shot with a smart slate.  That process is OK, and the best for complete confidence… but it also takes a lot of time, and extra footage/HD space too.

TC would be the best option, and it is in development…

I'd like to know if anyone else is using the beeps to sync, and what results they are having.  I'm using a Tascam DR-680, and feeding the beep onto the 6th channel via a wireless transmitter.  What I am finding that the beeps are around 7 frames off from the start time of raw_rec.mo (I'm using V1).  That would be perfectly fine if I was to use that for a project… but does it stay consistent? What are your experiences?

Thanks.
