Customer Question

I have a new Zoom H6 recorder. I need to sort out what format to record in so that I can easily synchronize with the video from a Panasonic HDC-TM700 camcorder. The camcorder will be recording in the "HA 1920x1080" mode.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

In what manner do you need to 'synchronize' the audio recorded from Zoom H6 ?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.

I want to use the included Cubase LE software to merge the audio and video.

I was having trouble with the website - could you confirm that my reply has made it through?

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

Yes, I got your response, thanks.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

Any audio format that would be compatible with Cubase LE software would do.

Try WAV format. MP3 format has had problems reported with it, when importing into Cubase LE.

Is there a particular bit rate I should choose? I thought that I understood the bit rate needed to be the same in the video and audio recording in order for the timing to be synchronized from beginning to end.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

Well, what's the bit rate in your video?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.

That is, I suppose, the root of the question. I reviewed the manual and only found the spec I gave you. I thought someone experienced in video technology would be familiar with video/audio editing. Have you used these kind of tools? Would a different expert be able to answer more easily?

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

I know video editing.

However, I think that you should determine first, what bit rate is in the video your camera takes.

And, what file format you will be taking the video in, if there are more than one of them that the camera is capable of.

I can look up that data for you if you don't know it.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

I see the vid format that you'll be recording in.

I haven't found the bit-rate yet though...

Customer: replied 1 month ago.

If you have someone familiar with the process, they may know that the bit rate is less important than some other factor...

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

I will Opt Out, since it has been implied that I do not know enough - and perhaps I do not.

This opens the case to other Experts in this category.

Thank you for your effort.
