I was wondering if anyone here knows of a good WAV file player for MAC or LINUX that will sync to SMPTE LTC time code or MTC MIDI time code?
Right now I am using Magix de Luxe on a PC to playback in sync with my editing system's image playback for full screen or windowed 24/25/30fps.
I drive Magix through the joy-stick port's 15pin with a 15pin to MIDI cable, to get the MTC I use a SMPTE LTC to MTC converter box the SMPTE comes from a Telcom T120 that hooks to the serial port of the image computer so My program can sync to the SMPTE. It works well for both master and slave both ways using a JL Cooper PPS-2 sync box (with EPROM upgrade).
I would like to look into the option of using a MAC or LINUX computer for the audio rather than just another Windows (tm) PC, so can programs like ProTools on a MAC sync to external SMPTE LTC, what is needed to do that, will a MAC sync to MIDI MTC also, does MAC have built in MIDI like a PC does or would I need to add a MIDI board?
Are there any LINUX WAV player/editor programs that sync to MTC on the joy-stick port of a sound board?
Thanks for any experience you can share about syncing MAC or LINUX computers to SMPTE LTC or MIDI MTC.
This could also be of interest to people who want to playback music and audio cues using the SMPTE out of the REDONE etc.
On another point, if anyone has any R3D files with embeded audio that is lip sync they can share it would be a help in testing the audio part of my REDONE workflow. If you don't have embeded audio, an image R3D and a WAV that has the clapboard slap on it and lip sync would also be helpfull.
Thanks for any info on this line...
