    Here's the situation: I record video with my OM-D, I also record audio externally using a recorder which only records up to 44.1khz. The OM-D is natively 48khz, so if I try to sync the 44.1khz track to the OM-D video in Premiere, it'll sync in the first minute of the clip and slowly get more and more out of sync as it goes on.

    So I resample the audio from 44.1khz to 48khz using Audacity, import that file, sync the 48khz audio file to the video... and it still goes out of sync. Aaaargh!
    Does anyone have any advice? I've googled the hell out of this, but all anyone talks about is resampling, which I already did!

    Have you tried a demo copy of Plural Eyes?

    Does the resampling do anything to the speed of the sound?

    Yes, but it is such a small amount that it is almost impossible to tell.

    I use an Olympus LS-14 recorder with my E-M5. They both sample at 48 khz.
    Here's the link for the LS-14 manual.

    I have a Tascam DR100 and by default it is set to 44.1 khz but you can set it to 48 khz. It is usually just used for recording audio for CDs and webcasts. I then used it for video and forgot I had it set to 44.1 and then had issues with it not staying in sync. It was very confusing and frustrating until I figured it out.
