Can anyone help, I need to digitise the audio form a DAT tape but also bring in the ORIGINAL timecode. If it helps Im mac based using primarily FCP as a video editor, just been asked to step out of specialism :)

Big thanks in advance.

OK
1st - You must use a tc enabled machine. NOT ABS TC. This means a higher value machine like a Sony PCM 7030 or 7040.
2 - Control the DAT deck by using a 9 pin control wire (RS232 protocol), exactly the same as if you were capturing from a Digi Beta or HD CAM SR etc etc. It will show up in the VTR preferences so you can set and select the VTR characteristics .
3) Capture the audio exactly as if it were a Video deck, just plug up the AES/EBU / or analogue outs to the capture machine and away you go.

The audio recordings will be recorded against the original DAT tc as if it were footage on a VTR.

Hope this helps

Peter
