  1. Timecode slate

    Does one need a timecode slate in order to sync footage or can one just have a lock it box to feed timecode to camera? For example if you're using a lock it box can one use a dumb slate and still sync via timecode?

    What are some other poly merger applications?
  3. Wave Agent

    I'm trying to add 1 mono file to a 8 track poly file, when I bring them into wave agent and press combine it says the process is complete but nothing happens. Can someone let me know the proper procedure to accomplish this? I should add this lone mono file is from a separate recorder, that's started a little later than the first recorder, so is it even possible to combine it in Wave Agent? Do I have to take it into a NLE or DAW, sync them, then export a 9 track poly? Thanks

    Can this device record and deliver Polyphonic Wav files?

    Thanks everyone, we got it to work! We're just offloading to a FW400 drive, the offloading from the internal HD to the external is still kind of slow but I'll take that over a DVD. The mixer was very grateful, he thought his FW port was NG and so he had not used it since 2009. If it wasn't for my persistence and the help of this forum, he would have been turning DVDs for the rest of his career.

    Thanks a lot Mirror for the step by step. We don't have a CF card, but we tried connecting an external drive to the firewire port. On the Ceva screen it says Internal HD "Ready" Mirror Drive "Mounting Drive..." and just stays there.

    Thanks Phillip, we're going to try a few different things, will report back the results on Monday.

    I appreciate the insight offered but I've never touched a sound recorder before, let alone one as old as this one, so I'm trying to get specific instructions (e.g Step 1,2 and 3) especially if it's something like installing a FW400 card reader, where one would have to open up the recorder.

    I didn't do the hiring, just trying to find a solution to the hand I've been dealt. I'm shocked that this has not been an issue for this mixer before, I mean a DVD, what is this 2005?

    So with a Firewire CF reader he could record to CF cards (assuming the firewire port is good)?

    OK, so the mixer actually thinks his USB works but he says that the USB on his recorder might be only for plugging in external audio devices like a keyboard, can anyone confirm if the USB on the DEVA V can be used for transferring the files to a USB drive?

    So is the process: 1. Select mirror mode 2. Select the folder you will record to at the beginning of the day, for example tomorrow 171606. 3. Select the drive you want to mirror that folder to. Now, anything you record throughout the day will also record to the DVD as you go? dfisk, maybe you could confirm the steps to execute this process? Thank you.

    Does Mirror Drive or Mirror Mode = "burn as you go"? The process from the manual (how to burn as you go) is not really clear to me.

    Hey guys, Thanks for the suggestions, either of those options would be much better than what we have going now. Obviously it's not my device but I'll have a talk with the mixer and see if we can do and what he feels comfortable with. That "burn as you go" option is that "Mirror Drive"? From the manual Mirror Drive # The Mirror Drive # button provides the options for mirroring the data off the internal drive onto other media through the FireWire port or the optional Internal DVD-RAM drive.

    Hi, I'm working on a production where the sound mixer is using a Zaxcom Deva V or 5. I think because it's an older piece of equipment and its usb/firewire port is broken the mixer has to burn a DVD at the end of the day of the sound files, which we then have to transfer. This process is painfully slow, from the burning of the disc to the transfer, and the disc is not the most reliable. I'm so used to working with mixers that record to a CF, SD card or even plugging into a usb port on their recorder that this is really time drain. Any ideas on how we could transfer from this recorder or speed up the workflow? is it possible to pop out the internal drive? Thank you
