Default Re: Importing an Audacity wave to Pro Tools M Powered

Syncing them has been very challenging.

Other than buy an interface with additional inputs, any suggestions?

Thanks Ray

So your problem is clock drift between the PC interface and the Tascam. Your only recourse to solve the problem at the source is to use an interface with more inputs.

Meanwhile, you should be able to use Time compression/expansion or Time Shift in varispeed mode to line up your current tracks.
