Hi all,

I was wondering if anybody knew of any software which would allow you to record timecode cue points to music or video. I have looked at most of the popular timecode syncing software etc and can't seem to find anything. I got the idea from an interview I read with Tim Routledge who said he used a little piece of mac software where he could drag and drop mp3 files and simply generate timecode hit-points where he wanted lx cues for later reference. Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Yours,

ben

Are you married to Mac's, do you also have other PC's, would you be interested in software which can work with either?
Have you considered @dbaxter 's tried and tested software solutions for theatrical lighting and sound? I believe some of Dave's software is available gratis with reduced features and / or limited time periods.
Dave's a regular poster and offers end-user support second only to ETC (No; I neither work for Dave nor collect any commissions).
Toodleoo!

If you have a Mac, using something like the program Twisted Wave allows you to view the timestamp in a Broadcast Wave file. If you know the start time of your file, you can use the program WaveAgent to set the start time in the Wav file that Twisted Wave can read. Then just set your markers in Twisted Wave.

I believe @dbaxter has software for both Apple Mac's and the rest of us.
@dbaxter Care to chime in?

Unfortunately for @benedict_gb04 , all our software is for Windows only. Not to start a religious war, but I find Mac's overly restrictive and hard to work with. As a company, we went with the 80% of the computer world that is Windows. The Cue Player products will run under Wine on Linux, if there is a similar environment for Mac's, then there's hope we could run that way for you.

If you ever wanted a great piece of free show software that you can drop mp3's into your lightshow and shange all the lights cues to you sound file very easily. Have done it many times. It runs of Linux.

Wine is available for mac.. also Codeweavers has a commercial version of Wine called crossover.
The new arm macs may screw this up for a while till the wine team gets a chance to catch up..

@jtweigandt Quoting you: "Codweavers has a commercial version of Wine".
Codweavers you say; sounds fishy to me.
