Seems I am late on this thread, closing the barn door when the lama
is out. But I think you should not eliminate the possibility
to cope with this situation in the future.
For sure the normal way is to record atoncode on the TC track
--Nagra, DAT or N-track ATR--; but in some occasions one doesn't
want to put these obtrusive and quite expensive recorders
in the fields.
You must then use tiny 'consumer' recorders --cassette or DAT--,
in which there is no other means to record time code but on
track two (for this purpose, among other mnfctrs, we make
a play-card pack size 1ppm accurate Smpte LTC generator).
Back to the lab the sound is digitised with a DAW which transfers
the tape onto disk using the LTC --whatever its frame rate and
playback drift--, as the 48kHz sampling reference
(the way an Aaton InDaw works).
Thus you get a frame rate independant timecoded master CD-ROM*
(*now at $2, a godsend) which can be InstaSync'd on your Keylink
to whatever the video frame rate you want: 29.97df, 25, 23.98
or 24.02, you name it.
You should run and bring the lama back.
