Whenever you’re recording audio from a different device than your camera and without the help of a timecode generator, it’s distinctly possible that you experience audio drift. That is, your camera’s audio output and your recording device’s output start in sync but drift apart along the way. It’s very frustrating and — except when one of your devices is broken, of course — very easy to solve. It all comes down to checking your settings.
If you record audio via an external recorder in order to replace the audio your camera captures, you’ll usually need some sort of a synchronisation tool. The simplest is using a clapper, with the second-best using Red Giant’s PluralEyes. But what if the audio your recorder captures drifts out of sync during recording? Why does that happen and how can you avoid it?
