I really should have joined this list decades ago. Y'all are my peeps. A
Tim's summarizing it correctly, imo, until the original poster gives us
anything to go on we can't help much. I'm guessing he simply needs to
figure out how far to turn the knob to match the intent of the creators.
Glad he came up with one piece he can match pitch to. I'm still curious
which TC format he found on there. Could be useful in figuring out if
there's a film/video he could use as reference.
Keep up the good work,
