About the RetroSync Studio Sound Module

This old home movie was badly damaged with faded color and torn sprocket holes not to mention film stretch down one side which resulted in tremendous "WOW' in the audio. The RetroSync Studio Sound Module not only produced a perfectly frame accurate, synchronous audio file, but the RetroSync software removed about 99% of the "WOW" in the audio, thereby improving the performance and useful life of the projector. NOTE: This product requires you to provide a working sound projector.

One of the occasional but daunting problems for small shops is when someone walks in with rolls and rolls of Super 8 or 16mm sound film. The Universal does not have a sound head but the new RetroSync Studio Sound Module will allow you to quickly and easily use your existing sound projector and transfer the audio in perfect sync with your Universal transfer (or any true frame-by-frame film scan). All you do is plug the USB cable from the RetroSync Studio Sound Module into your PC, run the speaker, line out, or earphone audio from your projector into the RetroSync unit, (it will attenuate all three audio sources properly) make sure that the projector light falls on the small sensor, (see illustration, right) then turn on your projector and let it run. The audio will be automatically recorded on the RetroSync software ($80) while the RetroSync Studio Sound Module keeps track of the shutter blade interruptions of the projection light source to produce an accurate "time map" of your audio. Once you've finished transferring all your audio for all your films, just make individual file selections in the software for 18, 24 or 25fps and click "PROCESS". Go get a cup of coffee while all your files quickly batch process. Once you return, you will find that you have a whole new set of WAV files that have been time corrected on a per-frame basis to create a file that is lip-sync frame accurate to your Universal transfer. Just put your Universal picture transfer and the new RetroSync WAV file on your timeline, find one sync reference anywhere, and everything will line up from beginning to end, regardless of duration. And the best part is that your audio will actually sound better than it did on your projector. Why? Because the RetroSync software will remove virtually all traces of "WOW" due to worn projector transport components. This not only produces a better audio product, but extends the useful life of your projector. The RetroSync Studio Sound Module can be used in regular room light and alignment with the LogicSync sensor is not critical. And, because the sensor is infrared sensitive, the software won't lose track of frames, even on the darkest of film (opaque leader notwithstanding, of course!). It works with all shutter blade configurations; 2, 3 or 5 blades. Since the RetroSync Studio Sound Module works with all projectors, regardless of format, you only need one module for your shop.
