Capturing audio from a dat into FCP
on May 9, 2007 at 3:08:01 am

Hey all,

I have to "load" sound from a Tascam DA-P1 portable DAT recorder into Final Cut and I'm wondering if anyone has experience with that, who might be able to point me in the direction of proper settings, things I should be looking out for, and of course (if possible), a step-by-step guide to gettin' it done.

It looks like I'll have to get these DAT tapes into FCP with the "voice over" tool. I have the DAT hooked up: stereo to 8th inch mini, line in...

Does this sound like the correct way to go about it? Is there a way to log using the voice over tool, or will logging involve another step?

Thanks for your help,

You can do it that way.

If your DAT and Mac have optical ins and outs, you can simply capture to a file on the Mac and import the AIFF's into FCP.

Another good way is to record the DAT to a DV or other digital tape (that your system can handle) and then capture the tape (and keep it as another master.)

You will THEN have a tape with TIMECODE that can be re-captured in the future.
