Source-LTC

Hello,
Anybody using the new Source-LTC app in the real world?
https://source-elements.com/products/source-ltc

It takes MTC from your Mac and converts to LTC and vice versa.
I tried a similar product while back but the latency was a deal breaker.
I wonder how this one compares?
Will do tests internally in the mean time.

Cheers

We have used Lockstep by Figure53 in the past with great success!
Alternatively you can try to find a plugin that can generate LTC from your session in real time (Nuendo have one), or simply make SMPTE LTC Wav file matching your session fps and sample rate and use that.

There are also old cheap midi synchronize hardware boxes that can convert between LTC and MTC that may work too, look at Ebay.

+1 for Lockstep by Figure 53. I use it all the time, works great. Only does LTC - MTC though not the other way around, but it’s free!

I tried Source-LTC for two different projects in 2021.
Gave up. It is really not reliable. It'd work for an hour sometimes and then fall apart. Or it wouldn't work at all from the beginning. It was very hit and miss and would delay the start of playback meetings.

Lockstep was excellent (which, funny enough, was being used to send LTC over a channel with Source Connect Pro)

I've had the best results just using an audio track of LTC sent down a channel in SourceConnect.

+1 for an audio track of LTC. Only tricky thing about that is you have to be careful of it’s position when adjusting your session start time.

The Dolby Atmos Production Suite also comes with an LTC generator plug-in that I’ve been using lately and that works really well.

Yeah, I've pretty much stopped using El-Tee-See.com since I started using the Dolby LTC plugin, I feel like we should all continue to donate to this site though. It has definitely helped get me out of some tight spots on some live events and on-site work.

Yes I did, but I didn't go for it for a few reasons.
I've been using audio tracks with LTC and never looked back.

Change all the templates to 00 hour and problem solved.

Basically, go to this site: https://elteesee.pehrhovey.net/
Download the file and put it on your timeline.
Feed that track to the receiving end for sync (which is usually the Right/2nd channel of Source Connect)
