Hi.

Just got a Tascam DR100mkII. I'm shooting with the Canon 5D Mark II and will be synching sound in post - working in FCPX. I'm wondering if I should keep the 2 audio's at 48kHz (the canon records at 48) or go up to 96 on the Tascam? WIll I have trouble synching them or get audio drift? I realize I need to test this out, but wondering if anyone has the answer...Thanks

Hello David and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

I'd say stick with 48kHz.

I'm with Ty (again!) on this.

96Khz is for rarified audio experimenters and those who make videos about communication amongst bats.

Everyone uses 48Khz (the defacto digital video sampling standard) for everything else.

Know someone who teaches video editing in elementary school, high school or college? Tell them to check out http://www.StartEditingNow.com - video editing curriculum complete with licensed practice content.

I like 96kHz if I'm going to be doing extreme amounts of processing as I get fewer audio artifacts. As long as you pay attention to what you are doing as far a production sound goes - right location, proper mic selection, solid boom technique - there should be no reason to go to a rate higher than 48kHz.

Peace,

Bob
