Besides having a proper setup (the right gear and the right usage), you should also look into getting exercises for your shoulders and back. I've been having serious issues for years after occasionally booming but mainly by having 'weak' shoulders and neglecting to do something about that. I can also totally recommend going to a physician/doctor specialized ...

It sounds to me that you're running into a pulldown issue, which WILL cause sync to gradually drift over time. Check your PT session setup and make sure there's no pulldown/up enabled (and subsequently, if there's a way to check this in FCP, it's, worth doing so as well). Framerates and pulldown/up are different animals - you can have two things using the ...

If it is just a question of different outputs; assuming you want to record the audio signal itself, then you have no choice other than to record it through 1/4". Midi isn't a traditional audio signal.

First off I think it's a big decision to buy a field recording rig. It's very good that you ask about these things, because it can prevent you from buying the wrong gear for the purpose.

As @NoiseJockey said - difference is in speed. Take a look at sources. CF card use parallel bus (PATA) similar to old HDDs. But it is not true that they are faster for more pins. Modern trends are to use less cables (eSATA, Thunderbolt, Ethernet) for flexibility and magnetic and electric shielding. Based on provided source SD cards are used primarily in ...

You've been bitten by THIS:http://duc.avid.com/showthread.php?t=212057 It's a fairly well known issue in FCP... When the Sequence is set to an Integer Frame Rate (i.e. 24, or 25) and the capture settings are set to non-integer rates (23.976, 29.97) FCP "helpfully" tries to correct the audio by doing pull-up/pulldown. The full details can be found in the ...

I'm going to echo Stavrosound here in that a little more detail would be helpful. I will, however, throw out the fact that there is a known issue with FCP (FCP7 in particular, don't know about FCPX if that's what's being used) where it will sometimes misread and rewrite the header information in audio files. This causes them to playback at the incorrect ...
