dr 05

hi i have a dr 05 i have connected it to my canon 70d for video,the dr 05 works great when recording i can hear it through my earphones BUT when i play the recording back there is no sound if i take the sd card out of camera and play on pc/tv still no sound i have it set at wav 24bit, sample 44.1, type stereo, size 2g, low cut 40hz, tone vol -24db level -48db, monitor mix input ON, PB 15 what ever PB means i was on the understanding that the audio would travel down the audio lead to my camera and sync with the video and on to camera sd card please help its driving me NUTS kind regards steve

...Just in case: When you record with your Tascam DR-05 does the red LED light stay fully on ? ( i.e. it does NOT blink )

I've seen some people accidentally NOT press the RECORD button a 2nd time to start the recording, so they think the recorder is recording but it's actually in PAUSE mode.

I always check to make sure that the recorder's TIME display is counting up as my last check before I shoot to be sure that I am actually recording audio.

hi yes when recording the red light is on not in standby. when i play back the audio through my head phones it sounds very good but i have to sync it with the video on my camera as there is no audio comeing out of my 70d i just cant get the audio to transfer to the camera and on to the sd card i have the audio lead/headphone from the dr05 pluged in the the mic jack on the camera hoping it will transfer all audio to the video. it might be easier to by a video camera lol kind regards steve

Why don't you just sync the audio in post ?

I have shot with cameras that have no MIC input, so I shoot dual-system sound where I use an external recorder for the "real" audio for the shoot and just use the camera audio to sync with the "real" audio.

Depending on what I'm shooting, I will sometimes let both the camera and recorder roll the whole time, so I end up with a 2 hour audio track and a 2 hour video track.

Then I sync the audio and video at the start and make a cut ( so both tracks start at the same place ), then go to the end of both tracks and sync them again ( they may be out be a few frames or a few seconds depending on the gear I'm using ), and finally I stretch the audio track to match to length of the video track. ( it's a built-in feature in Sony Vegas Pro ) From this point on I have 2 hours of perfectly sync'd audio and video to edit with.

The process I just described is very fast, I can sync 2 hours of video in about 15 seconds. Longer videos take about the same amount of time to sync.

Most editors feature some form of audio time stretch.

Also using a film-slate makes it super easy to match up the audio and video. Just line up the matching audio spikes.
