Part II: Technology > Synchronization and Transfers

7. Synchronization and Transfers

Little in production and postproduction can be accomplished without synchronization—the ability to lock two or more signals or devices that have microprocessor intelligence so that they operate at precisely the same rate. That includes almost any combination of audio, video, and film equipment, from a simple audio-to-audio or audio-to-video recorder interface—analog or digital, tape or disk—to a complete studio system that interfaces a digital audio workstation (DAW), console, synthesizer, sequencer,[1] effects processor, and other equipment throughout a facility.

[1] Asequencer is a device that can record performance data for synthesizers and other electronic instruments and, during playback, pass on that data to the instruments so that they play what has been recorded.

Accurate synchronization requires a system to code and coordinate the recording media and the controlling mechanisms to ensure that signals remain in sync.
