Sure, you love your job. But donít you just hate the grinding tedium of endlessly writing down timecodes and laboriously filling in labels for all your DATs, M-O discs, Multitrack tapes, Track Sheets etc?
Let Lumberjack take the hassle out of your life!
Lumberjack, The Logging System, is your complete recording session management solution. Running on any Windows PC it handles all the tedious tasks of a recording session - controlling the recording machines, logging start and end times, and printing take lists and box labels. As an added bonus, it also has the most advanced timecode calculators on the market - handling all timecode formats, film rates, delay times, tempos, take durations, pitches, sample rates, varispeed percentages etc.
Easy To Use
Lumberjack is incredibly easy to use. After no more than a couple of hours training, you will be able to operate it in your sleep. But you wonít want to sleep, because Lumberjack frees you from all the boring chores of recording sessions, and lets you get back to the real reason you wanted to work in the industry in the first place - great music!
For example, logging a new take is as simple as hitting the space bar. In an instant, the timecodes of up to four recording machines will be captured, and the new take number stored as a Program ID on suitable DAT and Genex machines. If it was a false start, simply hit the F key when the musicians start playing again. Once the take is finished, press E and the end time will be logged and the take duration calculated automatically.
Impress The Producer
When it comes to playing back, it is just as easy. If you want to play back Take 26, just press T26P, which will locate the playback machine(s) to the final start of Take 26, after any false starts, preroll a few seconds (user adjustable) and go into play. If you are using a digital audio workstation or a disc-based system, such as a Genex GX8000 M-O disc recorder, this is all instantaneous. If you then want to move a minute and a half forward, simply press +130P. Commands can be joined together, so if you wanted to locate to a point 1 minute 25 seconds into take 42 and go into stop, you would press T42+125L.
No More Pens, No More Sore Fingers
When the session is over, Lumberjack can quickly print out all your take lists and box labels. A fast print preview helps to prevent unnecessary paper wastage. Lumberjack ships with a large set of label templates, which you can modify to suit your own company stationery, using the integrated report designer.
