Time code from CD - what's happening?

z6p6tist6z6p6tist6 Registered User
One of the features of the console that I find invaluable is the ability to play back time code and audio directly from the desk using the CD player.

When using CD based timecode on the console, the time code that is used on-screen appears as 30fps SMPTE if I remember correctly.

Could someone enlighten me as to what is happening with the time code in the console?

i.e. Is the CD's native time code being converted to SMPTE internally, are we just seeing a representation of the time code that we are familiar with, or is the time code from a CD exactly like SMPTE?

Thanks,

Phil

    So it might help if I logged in before posting a reply next time. The above "anonymous" post really was me :)

    So, having not tried this, is the beginning of the disk 0/00/00.00 and continous through the disc, or is there a new 0/00/00.00 at the beginning of each track, or is it yet something different, like track#=hour?

    David,

    Thanks so much!

    After using this feature quite a bit, it is nice to know how the console is handling it.

    Regards,
