Olympus DS-30, how much adjustment needed to sync with video

I am using the above recorder, anyone know what percentage I need to slow up or speed up the audio from it to more closely match video?

Jeff,

I have two of them and they are both different. I think you are using Vegas Pro like I am.

What I do is find a common point at the beginning between the camera audio and the DS-30 audio and line that up, trim the start of the DS-30 audio to this point, then find a common point at the end of the audio, then trim the end of the DS-30 to this point and then stretch( cntrl+click) the DS-30 audio to align with the camera audio. You can then expand the DS-30 audio back out at the beginning and end and it will stay in sync.

It sounds more complicated than it is to do it and once you've done it a time or two it becomes second nature.

Jim I have seen thread after thread about this subject but your commonsense method is stupidly simple and effective, takes no time.

Thanks again.
