Tascam HD-P2 Timecode Question
on Mar 16, 2009 at 7:25:36 pm

I recorded some dialogue on the HD-P2 which was jam- synced to timecode with a Aaton Option C timecode generater.

The files were conformed with the HD-P2 software on location and handed off to the director.

When the director drops these in different audio software programs the tmecode is not being recognized. He feels that the timecode is not there.

He has tried dropping the files in Nuendo, Vegas and Audition.

I know that the timecode is on the compact flash card in the HD-P2.

Is there anyone with experience recording timecode with the HD-P2 who might understand what is going on here?

Thanks

Hi Bob and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum,

Someone may chime in here. If they don't I'd check with Tascam or with the newsgroup rec.arts.movies.production.sound

Ty,

Thanks for the RAMPS suggestion. I have read posts on RAMPS before but had never posted there myself. There are very generous with their knowledge.

Thanks,
Bob

i ran into the same problem. here's the deal:
b/c the hd-p2 records as a broadcast wav file, it is just "stamping" a timecode number at the beginning of the audio file and again at the very end. there is no separate timecode track. it is just metadata.

the good news is that final cut can read it. just go to "view" and turn on the timecode overlays in final cut. you'll see the timecode numbers in the canvas viewer window. final cut extrapolates the timecode correctly if your sequence settings are correct in final cut.

i have noticed that the timecode stamp is off by a frame or two (discrepancy between what the tascam says when you look at the timecode on it vs. what final cut says is the first tc #) - but that's a small issue really given how easy it is to slide audio by a frame or two in fcp
