    Sync Audio to Audio file by waveform

    I have an audio recorder which is timecode-synced to my camera.

    I can sync everything by timecode in avid.

    Now I have to sync a backup file from an audio recorder to the audio from my recorder, which was timecode-synced to the video.

    Can i sync audio to audio directly? Avid says it needs at least one video file?

    Hi,

    You can sync 2 audio clips together by waveform analysis using Group Clips. Would this do for you?

    Put them in a bin together, select them both and then choose Group Clips from the Clip menu, or shift/command/g, or right-click the selection and choose Group Clips...

    The dialogue is pretty self-explanatory.

    You end up with a Group Clip (obviously!) which contains both audio clips. When you edit with it, you can right-click in the timeline to choose which member of the group is output.

    The default audio is whichever clip was topmost in the bin. So sort if you have a preference, arrange to sort the bin 

    contents appropriately before you make the Group.
